Resolved: More efficient method for capitalising keywords

Hi Evashen!
Thanks for reaching out.

Yes, this is the option to beautify the code. You can use the combination Ctrl+B and this will format your code.

Hope this helps.

this was my problem too. Thanks for asking that question. 

the solution i got is that just write your code in small letters, and when you are done, copy everything and use these tools online. they will format your code

There are several SQL formatters available online and as standalone applications that can automatically capitalize your SQL keywords for you. These tools can be used to format your code before finalizing it in MySQL Workbench. Some popular SQL formatting tools include SQLFormat, Poor Man's T-SQL Formatter, and online resources like Instant SQL Formatter. 

i personally love Poor Man's T-SQL Formatter (
