Toad Data Point 5.0 - User Guide

Read-Only Installation

During installation, you can select an option to install Toad as a read-only application. This lets you query data and view objects using Toad, but all actions that can impact the database (Create, Alter, Drop, Insert, Update, etc.) are disabled or hidden. This ensures that you can use Toad without worrying about committing a change to a sensitive production instance. The following image shows an example of the differences between a typical and a read-only installation:
