Store your PL/SQL packages in files with .pkg extensions?

We CAN support that, but we don’t out of the box.

Open your preferences, go to File Extensions, and create a new entry for ‘pkg’ – and set the type of editor to PL/SQL.

pkg isn’t there on Day 1, you’ll need to add it

With this going, now when I do File – Open, and point to a file of that type, it’ll open in the PL/SQL Code Editor, and you’ll see all of the PL/SQL IDE features…like the compile/execute buttons and access to the Code Outline panel.
