The Windows Toolbar of SQL Manager allows you to switch between child windows easily, like in Windows Task Bar.


To activate the window you need, simply click one of the window buttons. To perform some additional actions with the window, right-click its tab and select the corresponding menu item from the popup menu.

If you have multiple windows opened, you can also switch between them using the Ctrl+Tab shortcut.


The Number of open editors is restricted option available in the Windows section of the Environment Options options dialog allows you to set the maximum number of editors that may be opened simultaneously. When the number of editors exceeds the specified value, the previously opened editors will be closed automatically.
