oLinked Tables/Columns - when a table is selected in the Tables tab, it is preselected when viewing the Columns tab (for SYSTEM TABLES also)

oMDI Support - the utility recognizes the MDI setting, and will remain open while other areas of R:BASE are used

oContent Refresh - when focus is switched back to the Data Dictionary, the content will automatically refresh (only in MDI mode)

oColor Value Conversions - provides a "Color Tool" mechanism to convert RGB colors to numbers

oTab Navigation - the [Ctrl+Page Down] and [Ctrl+Page Up] hot keys allow the next/previous tab navigation

oColor Identifiers - the tabs are organized with distinctive color identifiers (triangle in top right corner) to improve the readability for the several different types of information presented

oTheme Preview - the Themes tab includes a preview button to review the theme presentation
