I work with Postico everyday and it would be great if the Postico settings will contain the wrap option for headers and values with a minimal column width e.g. 120px. It's better for reading.

What do you think about it?
Thanks.

I'm not sure I understand correctly. Do you suggest that Postico should clip the column title (like this: idcatgo...) when the column is less than 120px wide?

I agree that wrapping column titles are not pretty, but I always found clipped column titles extremely annoying.

idcatgo... yes and you're right. I don't want to add it as default settings, only as option. Developers who work with DB know their columns. Thanks.

Hi @jakob, I prefer idcatgo... too.

I would prefer no wrapping too. More importantly, the fields in the table should not wrap in my opinion, and rows should be a single char high, not two. You have the right sidebar to view details if needs be so no need to clutter the table. Also, the grey/white stripe of Sequel Pro's table is nice rather than dividing with a line. Thanks for the great software!

I've redesigned the table view a bit, and turned off wrapping in the column headers.

I'm considering adding a preference for the row height, so that people can also turn off wrapping in the content area. That's a bit more work, so I'm saving it for later.

The headers are looking good. Please please make the table layout single line (with grey banding). Make it like Finder list view. No need for a preference setting even. Postico is the best postgres app available for simply browsing data, but this would really be the icing on the cake! Thanks!

Please make grid rows single line. It's very critical.

I've now added an option to configure the number of lines per row in the table view, so you can change it to a single line. Prerelease build:
https://eggerapps-downloads.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/postico-1309.zip

I'm planning to add an option for alternating row colors instead of grid lines as well, but I first need to redesign the preference window which ended up pretty messy.

Lovely! Thank you! Preference window seems fine as it is for now. Alternating colors will be nice...

Comparison with SequelPro: http://f.cl.ly/items/3k0R2N2c3f1R080p1s2j/Image%202016-02-05%20at%2012.06.53%20pm.png

I've now implemented all the features requested here:

  1. no more wrapping in table header
  2. preference for setting number of lines per row
  3. added a pref to use alternating row background colors

I'm marking this issue as fixed now.

Please try the prerelease and let me know if this works for you!
