Does SQL Maestro for MySQL support MariaDB-specific features?
Yes, SQL Maestro for MySQL provides direct support for a number of MariaDB-specific features including roles, check constraints, virtual columns, and more.
I cannot create views using your program. There is no such node in the explorer tree.
Views are being implemented in the 5.01 version of MySQL Server. Check the version of MySQL server you are using.
How to transfer a database from one MySQL server to another?
Export your database to an SQL script with the Backup Database tool, then create a new database at the target server and execute the result script against that database.
Why I cannot create a foreign key for a table?
Foreign keys are supported only for InnoDB tables. You can change the table engine at the Properties tab of Table Editor.
I want to connect to the server via SSH tunnel and I have a public-private key pair that works fine with PuTTY. However when I test the connection, I get an error message "Key is broken".

PuTTY uses its own format to store private keys while our products support private keys stored either in OpenSSH or ssh.com formats. To convert a private key from PuTTY's format to one of the formats acceptable by our software, use the PuTTYgen utility that can be freely downloaded from the PuTTY website.

Are there any graphical tools for building and executing queries implemented?
SQL Maestro for MySQL provides two powerful tools which allow you either to edit query text directly with syntax highlighting and code completion or to build a query diagram visually selecting tables and fields, setting links between tables, etc.
What is the function of Generate Database Report? Does the report include data?
Generate Database Report Wizard allows you to print definitions of the database objects. To run the wizard, select the Tools | Generate Database Report main menu item. The wizard helps you to print all the database object or specify the Categories for printing according to the selected object type. The report does not include database data.
Is code completion implemented in the SQL Editor?
The Editor area is provided for working with the text of the query. For your convenience code completion is enabled. You can activate the completion list by pressing the Ctrl+Space key combination.
I cannot edit the SQL definition using the SQL tab? Why?
The reason is that you are trying to edit SQL definition within the SQL tab of the object editor. Bear in mind that this text is read-only. If you want to modify the object definition, use SQL Editor or SQL Script Editor tools.
What is the difference between Object Manager and Object Browser?
Both Object Manager and Object Browser are tools for operating on database objects designed as extensions of the Database Explorer. SQL Maestro for MySQL provides such operations as multiple selecting of objects (for copying, dropping, etc.) and the ability of using drag-and-drop operations between Object Manager, Object Browser and Database Explorer as well as between instances of the Object Manager or Object Browser. Unlike Object Manager Object Browser represents objects as a grid with according possibilities (sorting, grouping, and filtering).
Is it possible to execute more than one query using SQL Editor?
SQL Editor provides you with an ability to execute multiple queries separated by a statement delimiter from the same editor tab. Queries are executed in a separate thread, so all SQL Maestro for MySQL features remain available during the execution.
