    Object context menu on object nodes in trees

    Column Header Section:

    Context menu items I'd like to point out:

    • Save Layout / Reset Layout
      Allows to memorize your grid layout including grouping, sorting, visible columns, filters etc. so that you have the same layout when you open the same grid next time.
      For Queries, one layout per query can be stored.
    • Cell Range Selection
      If checked, you can select any rectangular portion of the grid. This can be useful if you want to copy and paste to Excel or other applications
    • Database
      Contains basic database operations such as deleting the object(s)
