Guys Please, Color Coding in the SQL Qry Editing Window - we need this

We need color coding in the SQL Editor Window for input tools.  We are always having to pull our code out of there and copy it into a Teradata window so it is easier to ready/trouble shoot.  This would save us some time and some hassle and would improve the Alteryx user experience. ( I think you've used a couple of my ideas already. This one is a good one too. )

@SeanAdams It automatically indents the generated statements, and allows you to change the whitespace and switch tabs without it clearing the indenting.

Status changed to: Implemented

The SQL Editor window has been improved with the following functionality:

- Fixed width font

- Syntax highlighting of common SQL keywords

- Your SQL statement is not lost when you switch tabs but do nothing else.

- The generated SQL statement is indented initially rather than being output in one long string

- If you highlight a brace it will highlight the matching brace

You can download the latest 2019.4 release (https://downloads.alteryx.com) to begin using this functionality.
