NO but I can edit text files with SQL scripts while not connected to an Oracle database, something TOAD just can't. For people who want a syntax highlighting editor for SQL files (and yes they exist!), TOAD won't work in these cases.

I'm not bashing..... and I said disconnected TOAD sessions, not database sessions. And even with sql*plus you can edit a file without a database connection. Actually, the 'flaw' in TOAD is that it counts licensed users per database connection, so it will need one while running.

I have been a satisfied TOAD user for a long time, and TOAD has options pl/sql developer does not have, but they have their price...
