Order by Primary Key on Quick Browse

This wil order the data in the "Data" tab of the Table Editor by the table primary key. If you use the Quick Browse function in the Database Navigator, it will use the table primary key to order the data as well. Default: ON

Enterprise Manager


Don't re-expand tree upon application start

When expanding "server" nodes, Database Workbench sometimes has to connect to the server to fetch certain information. When working in other environments (for example, out of the office), such connections cannot be established, resulting in delays during application startup. Checking this option avoids re-expanding the Enterprise Manager tree. Default: OFF
