Allow Standalone Field Declarations to Reference Subfields of Nested DS Arrays
Declaring a standalone field with a reference field (keyword: LIKE) should work if the referenced field is a subfield of a data structure array in a nested data structure. Use Case: dcl-ds DS_A qualified template; dcl-ds DS_Arr_B dim(10); field1 v...
I would like to be given a dark mode or the ability to control colors for Run SQL Scripts. Between the dark screen of the emulator and dark mode of RDI, it would be awesome to also have a dark theme for Run SQL Scripts. RDI gives the option to app...

In BRMS, need functionality to display the library name or a name to show the contents of the SAVF created by BRMS.
