Toad for Oracle 13.2 - Release Notes

Getting Started with Toad

Getting started with Toad for Oracle

Toad for Oracle is distributed in the Toad for Oracle 2019 Editions at https://support.quest.com/download-product-select.

Upgrade and installation instructions

Please refer to the Toad for Oracle Installation Guide at https://support.quest.com/technical-documents for installation and upgrade instructions.

Upgrades for Toad for Oracle can install side-by-side with any previous versions you have installed. You can run the new and previous versions concurrently.

The first time you run the new version of Toad, the settings files from the previous version are automatically imported. To start with a clean set of user files, go to Utilities | Copy User Settings, then select Create a clean set of user files from the base installation.

Note: Toad supports importing settings only if the new version is within two releases of the previous version. If your versions are more than two releases apart, you need to install an intermediate version to successfully import the files.

User instructions

To get started with using Toad for Oracle, see the Guide to Using Toad at https://support.quest.com/technical-documents. For detailed information about any Toad window or feature, see the online help, which can be accessed from the Help menu.

Globalization

Global Operation Statement

This section contains information about installing and operating this product in non-English configurations, such as those needed by customers outside of North America. This section does not replace the materials about supported platforms and configurations found elsewhere in the product documentation.

This release was not enabled and tested for international operation. Only U.S. English configurations of this product and U.S. English datasets are fully supported. Support for non-ASCII characters or non-English configurations may work appropriately, but these configurations have not been tested and this release should be used with caution in these environments.

This release has the following known capabilities or limitations: Toad 13.1 is a Unicode application. As such, it has native support for any Oracle Unicode character set, such as UTF8 or AL32UTF8. There are some features in Toad which use or invoke Oracle Utilities or applications which are not themselves Unicode applications. Their functionality is therefore limited to the character set of the client on which Toad is running, and NLS_LANG must be carefully set to match the Windows character set

We have also observed issues with US7ASCII when used with non Latin characters.
