Is there a way to have the column size automatically adjust to fit the data queried? It seems silly to have to resize the columns for every column.BTW is it possible to vote no a thousand times for the ribbon interface? Ribbon interfaces was enough to make me drop back to Office 2003 and seriously consider Open Office.

Aside form the columns issue, what is so appalling about the Ribbon interface? Please do go into detail, we'd like to hear it.

Well, the column issue is why I posted the question. The ribbon thing deserves board of it's own.For now I have once again dropped back to Primal SQL 2009 which at least divides the available space equally. I mean really, who uses a query building tool to see only parts of each column? If that is what they want then they/we could just do a select count(*) for query.

You can email your opinion about ribbons to support@sapien.com if you like that better. Otherwise feel free to start a new thread.
We are currently discussing the column issue. My understanding is that the columns auto-size based on the initially visible columns.

I'll send an email. I'm afraid posting about ribbons and their perceived value might start a holy war.I'll put together a reproducible scenario to illustrate what I am talking about with the column thing.

Alright, looking forward to your email. We are working on some changes to the column sizing. Hang on until the next service build.
