Do you find yourself always scrolling and scrolling and scrolling to get to the column you want to see when looking at a table or view’s data?
Don’t do that!
Instead, just right-click on the column headers, select ‘Columns’, and reorder as desired.
Then move up the columns you want to see first…
This will only change how the data is displayed for you, and SQL Developer will remember this ordering until you ‘Delete Persisted Settings…’
What IS Remembered Via These ‘Persisted Settings?’
- Column Widths
- Column Sorts
- Column Positions
This means if you manipulate one of these settings, SQL Developer will remember them the next time you open the tool and go to that table or view.
Don’t know what I mean by ‘Find/Highlight?’
