Can I change the font?

You can change the font including type and size under: settings -> preferences. However at this time you cannot change the color theme. If this is a feature you would like please contact us to let us know.

System commands are not working.

Having problems setting a timer or call terminal commands? There is a subtle difference in how kdb treats commands sent from a remote process compared to running it from a file. Kdb+ does not handle multi-line remote commands beginning with \. Instead of \t 1000 use a system call with speech marks: system "t 1000";.

This does mean some dos commands will need their parenthesis escaped. e.g. \echo "hello" becomes system "echo \"hello\"";

How does your single user license work? can I install it both of my desktop and laptop using the same license?

The license is a key that you enter into qStudio. Yes you can install it on up to 3 of your machines, as it allows use on multiple systems.

Will I get updates for free with new releases? Are new features being added?

Yes you will get updates for free.
New features are always being added, this is dictated by the requests of paying customers. Many of our past releases are detailed in our blog.

Can I send more than one query at once?

Currently qStudio only supports sending one query per qStudio instance. If you try to send more you will get a warning message or a java.lang.IllegalStateException: Only one query at a time Error.

If you do want to send more than one query at a time, we recommend opening another fresh instance of qStudio.
