Customize Workspaces

Customize the Toad Interface

Toad provides many ways for you to customize the interface to suit your work style and improve your productivity. Most areas of the interface are customizable, from the toolbars and menus, to the grids and workspace itself. You can also set custom defaults for actions, commands, and other tasks that Toad performs for you.

 

About Workspaces

Customize your Toad Environment > Customize Workspaces > About Workspaces

A Workspace is a customized set of windows and connections in Toad that you can name and save. Multiple Workspaces are supported.

You can open one workspace to work in a specific environment, such as Testing, and then quickly switch to another one, such as Development, without having to open one set of windows and connections and close the other.

You can create your own or use the starter Workspace named "Default Workspace." It is initially empty (that is, contains no windows or connections). This Workspace is the only one which cannot be deleted.

 

Create Custom Workspaces

Customize your Toad Environment > Customize Workspaces > Create Custom Workspaces

When you create different workspaces, you can easily resume work in the correct context as soon as you open Toad. Create as many workspaces as you need.

To create a Workspace

  1. Right-click in the main Toad toolbar then select Workspaces to make certain the Workspaces toolbar is shown.
  2. In the Workspace toolbar, click to name and save your Workspace. Your open windows and connections are saved and will be reestablished the next time you open this Workspace.

To open a saved Workspace

Select the workspace from the Workspaces toolbar.

When you open a saved Workspace, you are notified that open connections that are not part of this workspace will be closed. Save any changes that you want to keep before closing those windows and connections.

To save changes to your Workspace configuration

Click in the Workspace toolbar to save changes to your Workspace configuration (newly opened windows and connections).
