I recently upgraded from phpMyAdmin 3 to 4. The “Display Direction” option has disappeared. This is the option on query results pages that allows you to control if result sets are displayed one per row (horizontal) or one per column (vertical).
I see that there is still a configuration option to set the “default display direction”:
However, I want to be able to change the direction on a per-query-result basis, like I was able to in v3. Is there a way to re-enable this feature? I’ve searched through the docs and have not found anything.
In the 4th phpMyAdmin there is a new settings option “Show display direction”. It’s responsible for enabling or disabling ability to switch display directions in a per-query-result basis.
By default, this is unchecked (disabled).
You can find this setting in: Settings > Main panel > Browser mode > “Show display direction”.
