Jumping in the Schema Browser and a reports tutorial link.
Who is a power user? You are.
Save time in the Schema Browser
Note: Screen shots are an exclusive 11.6 preview, but the functionality is the same. Thanks to Bert for this tip! It's one of his favorites.
The Schema Browser can perform intelligent contextual jumps to related items.
For example, to quickly learn more about an index:
* In the Schema Browser, highlight an index on the Indexes tab.
* Press SHIFT+F4.
Toad jumps to the indexes on that index. This is faster than changing the left-hand-side (LHS) selection from Tables to Indexes and scrolling down to choose that Index.
* Then click the blue arrow 'Back to...' button on the toolbar [cid:image007.png@01CD81DA.6C76C8B0] to jump back to the table.
* Use the 'Back to...' and 'Forward to...' buttons or click the drop-down arrow next to the 'Back to' or 'Forward to' button to choose from your browsed history.
These arrows function much like Internet browser buttons and can save you time when working in the Schema Browser.
