    By the way, how did you do this animation? :)

      All of my screenshots are done with @techsmith – either SnagIt or Camtasia Studio. I record the screen, then produce the edited video as a .GIF. Takes only a few minutes once you get used to the editing booth.

    Are there more settings to configure these behaviors? What seems intuitive to me (at least for tables and views) is for the +/- (on PC) or >/V (on Mac) to expand/collapse the information in the Connections pane *without* changing what’s being displayed in the ‘main’ pane. Clicking a table or view should (in my intuition) open something in the main pane. Data is the tab *I* use most commonly, so I would prefer that be the default (rather than Columns or whichever-tab-was-most-recently-used).
    Is this possible using existing options? Do other people work similarly?

      Expanding the object => Open object. I agree, that’s not the intuitive behavior. There’s no option to control that, but I’d be happy to log an enhancement request for you.

      MRU is controlling the default panel you see when browsing a table or view. That does seem intuitive to me though.

    Nice tutorial. I am new to he programming and web world and sometimes I get confused. This post has definitely pushed me in the right direction. And the animation is awesome!

      Thanks again. Some things are just too hard to describe with words, so taking 30 seconds to record some screencasts for a GIF seemed like a no-brainer. If you are having problems with anything else, and feel that a video or blog post might help, please let me know!
