I can never remember (nor quickly find) the LINQPad/VS shortcut for returning to the previous location after using F12. Adding it to the Edit|Advanced menu under the F12 related keys would be very helpful.3 votes
LinqPad results window has export options for Word, Excel and HTML. It would be helpful to invoke these from the LinqPad query, maybe as a method in the Util function.
Util.ExportResults(string ExportFileName, ExportType TypeOfExport);
Util.ExportResults(@"c:\MyExport.html", ExportType.HTML);3 votes
It would be great if all trailing whitespace in the query document is removed when saving the file. LINQPad seems to add lots of erroneous whitespace. Eg. if you're working in an indented code block and hit enter multiple times, the empty lines all have erroneous whitespace.3 votes
Dump doesn't extend ReadOnlySpan<char> right now. It'd be nice to have something like
The 'Show Graph' feature is brilliant quickly comparing the relative size of numbers, but it does not work well for negative numbers. It would be great if negative numbers showed extending to the left (and perhaps in red) with positive numbers showing to the right of some imaginary zero-point line. (Thanks for a great product!)3 votes
Please make it easy to find and copy the existing activation code from within Linqpad itself. I was going to examine upgrading to version 6 today but can't as I don't have this code to hand. And I couldn't locate it in Linqpad :(
This feature would probably get a few more impulse purchases before Xmas! :)1 vote
Would like to request a "Reset Window Layout" option. Very helpful when comparing between multiple tabs to have them all of the same height/width etc.3 votes

I use LINQPad to work with libraries based on previous versions of .NET, and it would be helpful to be able to edit the App.config like I could in LINQPad 5.3 votes
I made a script to modify a registry key, and I realized I needed to run it as an admin for the script to work. I needed to save the script first, so I could close LinqPad, and reopen it as an admin. Some way to elevate the current query, or reopen LinqPad as admin without needing to save would be cool.1 vote
I don't often want or need to save the output from a LinqPad script, but when I do I almost invariably need to end up with a PDF that will be sent to someone else. The current export options (Excel, Word, HTML) get the job done but require an additional step. It would be really nice if LinqPad could export directly to PDF2 votes
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
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

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.4 votes
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 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
