Edit mode and saving - Object editor
In object editors (tables, views, functions and procedures) you edit the whole object at once. Editing is available right when you enter any field. When you make any change an asterisk (*) is displayed beside object title. The object is edited but changes are not saved yet.
After editing you need to save changes in objects. Saving impacts all object tabs. To save changes click Save button in the ribbon, press Ctrl + S or confirm saving.
Edit mode and saving - Lists
On lists (tables, views, functions, procedures or modules) you edit one row a time and changes are saved right when you exit the field.
