    The SOQL editor has come VERY far since early versions of TWS but one thing still bugs me: if I check a field over in the schema explorer, it rewrites the query based only on what's checked in the schema explorer. 

    It would be very nice if this rebuilding of the SOQL looked at the existing text and only replaced the SELECT portion. That would allow me to monkey around with the fields without having to tdo the copy/paste dance on the rest of the statement.

      Hi Dave,

      Thank you for sharing this with us.

      We have this improvement in our backlog and are considering different options to implement it. There's a possibility that we will release it together with the inline code completion functionality directly in the Apex editor, which is planned for the next month or +-. However, using Salesforce's tradition - "safe harbor" :)

      Thank you once more, your input helps us to prioritize our backlog appropriately!

      Best regards,

        I would also like to see this implemented ASAP. It is now nearly 3 years since this feature was requested, and should not be that difficult to implement.
