Hi...what's the .sql.design file used for? It's not always created for all .sql files.

The *.sql.design file contains the information on the entities position on the query builder diagram.

What diagram? These files seem to get created randomly. I'm not doing anything with diagramming. How can I prevent these files from getting created?

What diagram?
That's a Query Builder diagram

These files seem to get created randomly.
It's created when you save the file.

There is no such a possibility.

Thanks, but this doesn't make sense. I'm not using query builder, why are these files getting created?

Please perform the following:
1. Memorize the name of the *.sql.design file and delete it.
2. Open the respective *.sql file having the same name in dbForge.
3. Next time the *.sql.design file is created, please provide us a screenshot of dbForge Studio with the respective *.sql file being opened at that moment.

Please note that the *.sql.design file get created upon saving the respective *.sql file.
