With SQL Azure in general and now specifically with the new serverless option it would be great to be able to enable the various ADO.NET and EF Core resiliency options so that you do not get a timeout on startup or when there is a transient failure. Both are just settings for number of times to retry, the retry interval, etc.
For EF Core with SQL you can use something like
sqlServerOptionsAction: sqlOptions =>
In ADO.NET you can do it in the connection string parameters

When installing LINQPad (6), it would be good for the installer to, either during or post, run a hidden instance that preforms the auto-update.
For those of us who package it in SCCM, this would be of significant benefit.4 votes
It would be nice to be able to edit the appsettings.json file, directly from the query properties windows (F4), comparable to the app.config editor in LINQPad 5/44 votes
There appears to be no way of including multiple resource dll's. E.g. one can refer to x.dll and only one x.resources.dll.
Put resource dll's into subdirectories, similar to where they were originally: e.g., .\ja-JP\x.resources.dll; .zh-CHS\x.resources.dll, etc.1 vote
When working with temporal tables there is no way to use LinqPad to alter / insert entites because it attempts to set values on AsRowStart columns -- and so the insert/updates will fail.
It would be nice to be able to exclude a column from consideration in a context / entity as this would solve this problem.3 votes
Possibility to add custom aggregates like sum, average over custom types for the Dump method.
Currently you get a sum/average underneath columns containing int's etc. (except if they are formatted through ToDump).
It would be nice to do something similar as ToDump for custom types, and or types like TimeSpans, Dates, etc.3 votes
In the Samples tab, add previous C# version samples. For example:
What's New in C# 7.3, 7.2, 7.1
What's New in C# 6.0
Many times, I reference your samples to help 'jog my memory' for syntax and when/where C# language features were introduced.3 votes
Since a SelectBox can have multiple selections, it would be useful to have a constructor overload which takes in a List<int> to specify multiple SelectedIndexes.1 vote
Time and again I hit Alt-Backspace, which is normally Undo (in Visual Studio, Word, etc.; same as Ctrl-Z), but in LinqPad it activates the menu — this throws me off completely! When I finally recover, I've lost my context and forgotten what I was typing.3 votes
It would be useful to have a tab before "My queries" with the preferred queries to get a link to start them quickly, also visible in the search query, to simply find the correct script.
We have thousands of queries in 8 years that we use LINQPad.1 vote
I just upgraded to LINQPad 6, and I cannot see the views from my database, only the tables.
I am connecting to a MySQL database.
I was able to see the views in LINQPad 5 just before the upgrade.
When dumping objects it would be nice to see which properties are marked as Obsolete by striking through them.1 vote

I love the new feature where you can load other linqpad files with the #load directive this makes my linqpad file way more reusable and modular, however...
When I have 3 files where file 1 includes file 2 and file 2 includes file 3 then file 1 also have to include file 3 even when not using any functionality from file 3 in file 1.
It would be great if file 1 does not have to include file 3.1 vote
Add editor command to insert a new GUID into the query text.
The current workaround requires opening another tab and running Guid.NewGuid() command there, then copy-pasting back to original query.4 votes
Show IL Code Description not just as Tooltip but optionally behind the IL code in each line1 vote
allow for relative reference to a config file.... something like.....
currently if no path info is supplied (just file name) the LP app assumes the file location to be the folder of LP.... maybe look in query path folder first?
This would allow for more portability of scripts... might be able to just package up the folder... relative references will allow things to run on the other end without having to make path tweaks.1 vote
