How to get indicator for primary key in columns view in SQL Developer? In other GUI tools there is usually some notification about which column is Primary Key or Foreign Key, but in Oracle SQL developer I can't find the way to see it in "Columns" view. Only way to see it is to go to "Constraint" view, which is not a big deal for small set of tables, but for any larger schema it could be really tedious to switch back and forth from views and keep mental note what was PK there and FK there etc. To illustrate, here are screenshots:

I am not using plsql developer these days but perhaps you could check the options / preferences in he plsql developer related to data display/constraints to see if any option to turn on the automatic display.

I re-looked for any changes in the G.A 4.03 <http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E39885_01/index.htm>, but to the best of my knowledge, the only other options for this information are in a report, or in the data modeler.
