SQL Developer Quick Hit: Zebra Pattern Data Grids

Here is a 2 second tweak that I recommend for all users of Oracle SQL Developer.

Open Tools – Preferences

    Database –

      Worksheet –

        ‘Grid in checkerboard or Zebra pattern’ – toggle ON

Grid option for alternating backgrounds

Now run a query in the worksheet or open a table in the browser

If you’re going to be staring at data for hours on end, give your eyes a break and mix it up a bit!
