If you’ve been paying attention, I’m not a huge fan of ‘automatic’ features. I like to use features on-demand. One of the default preferences in the tool is to open an object as soon as you click on it in the connection tree.
But as soon as I want to drag an object to a model or to a worksheet, I lose my mojo and SQL Developer interrupts my workflow to open the object editor.
Also, you might have a fat finger or a hair-trigger mouse, so you accidentally click on things when you don’t mean to.
There’s an easy fix for this.
To the preferences!
Now to open objects, you must double-click on them. This makes it much harder to accidentally open objects and interrupt your workflow.
