    I have suggestions that is easy to implement I think but can improve readability. For the moment HQL does not allow and AS after a table to define an alias for the tablename.
    For fields and calculated fields in the FROM clause, the AS can be used but not for a table alias.

    Not sure what it means your reply. I’m new here. I just made a suggestion what I believed could be useful and would not be hard to implement.
    But indeed auto completing fieldnames would be handy as well. Or just an overview of tables and fields you could drag to the query window.
