when working with several locations within databases with lots of schemas and tables, I often find myself scrolling the object tree up to reassure myself that I am in the correct location.
Good idea. I'll open a ticket for consideration.
I think this would be great - how about a separate, read-only, live window that constantly displays this "path" of parent nodes for whatever object is currently selected, whether that object is a tab or a node or whatever. And while maybe the user could choose single-line vs tree format, for me tree is superior because visually I know which part of the path I'm interested in.
