  • DDL comparison in external tool

    The structure synchronization in Navicat shows two panes with DDL on the DDL Comparison tab. However, there is no indication of which lines (or parts of the lines) in the DDL differ. I think it would be very helpful - until Navicat gets such feature - to be able to pass the DDL contents of the two panes as temp files to an external tool of user's choosing defined in Navicat settings. I use ExammDiffPro, but there are also free ones, like the one that comes with Tortoise SVN.

    Hi tkimovski,

    Thanks for your suggestion. I have forwarded your request to our development team. They will consider it.

      Thank you for the consideration. This is an example of a "low-hanging fruit", where the implementation effort required by Navicat is small, but the benefit for the end-user is significant. The heavy-lifting is still upon the third-party app, whereas Navicat is to only prepare and pass the input temp files to it.
