I do 'Pack All Columns' all the time after a Query.
Please add the ability to remember 'Pack All Columns' for Queries.

I would like this feature as well.

Me too. I use SQL query panel a lot and for results with many columns it's so annoying to press the "pack columns" button.
For a LOT of columns (around 40) the "pack columns" button is even harder to reach.
Definitely a most needed feature. Maybe, instead of something under Tools --> Options, better s toggle button like the one to "Keep Prior Tabs" in the tool bar for the current SQL commands document.
By the way [scriptoid], how do you reach "Pack All Columns" option when there's a LOT of columns in the result? I have not been able to do that.

Idea of pack button/option
This is an idea where "Pack/Expand" columns button would be nice to be present
@dvader666 I do not have a problem when there many columns as there is a scroll and the drop down menu is present all the time - see attached picture.
Now it would be nice to have a combination of general options and per query settings.
Ex: Being able to make all queries either expanded or packed inside the General options but also have a toggle button (see attached picture) that will be "per query result that will allow to pack or expand the columns.
Personally I do wonder who would like his columns expanded by default....i think most of us would like it packed...but I might be wrong.
