If set, a message section is shown with some useful links. Enabled by default.

  • notebook (default)

Msg › Db Editor: Start Language

Select the initial language for multiple-language DB Notebooks (does not apply to script editors). The choice of languages are:

Msg › Db Editor: Upper Case Keywords

When set, keywords shown in code-completion popups appear in all uppercase letters and are inserted as such in the SQL statements. Enabled by default.
