See the attach image showing the new feature separating tables/views in the left navigation.

After using it for a week its just gets annoying having to keep opening the table each time I swap database

    What does this mean? Looked in both documentation and settings can't find labels

    Ben,
    Chanaka added the "navigation" label to this bug ticket; it's a way to classify tickets.

    Ben,
    have you tried version 4.1.0-beta2 ?

    Hi Marc,

    is there an undocumented setting starting 4.1.0-beta2?

    The default expanded view setting would be great. As I'm using only one db (only_db) with phpmyadmin it would be nice to have a view of all tables at glance.

    Using 4.2.0-dev with all advanced features.

    Hi zembrowski,
    Have you tried increasing this setting?
    http://docs.phpmyadmin.net/en/latest/config.html#cfg_MaxNavigationItems

    (I'll move its documentation to the navigation panel section)

      Hi Marc,

      thanks for the response. Yep, I've tried even that one. I've tested all settings that have something to do with the navigation panel. Without success.

      A setting similar to $cfg['InitialSlidersState'] (affecting the main window) would be nice for the navigation tree.

      It would be more efficient to see all tables at start, as I've got just few tables in every database and the additional clicks (as described by Ben) are just annoying if you often switch servers. Sadly my hosting provider configured for every database a separate user (you can not set privileges), so you have to logout and login to the different database + click to expand the tree and see the tables.

      Hopefully you understand our perspective.

        I've heard a few comments that the menu isn't the easiest to use and think having an option to open all items would help those users as well. I'd be worried about performance, though.

    In current version, a click on the database name in the tree, shows all its table names.

      Thanks Marc. Is it possible to set the tree unfolded (showing all table names) at start? So the click on the database name would be redundant.

    Well, you can open another feature request for this, but I doubt that such behavior would be useful for the community in general. I guess that most users have many databases in their tree.

      You're right not every one would want to see all the table names at once, but it might be an option for those who hate the additional click, myself included.

      Nevertheless thank you for your time and solution.
