One really nice feature of Toad (database administration tool) is the ability to auto-format your SQL (usually with CTRL + SHIFT + F).

Manually formatting SQL greatly increases readability, but takes a lot of time (e.g., modifying the layout of SQL, adding or removing extra whitespace, adding or removing extra lines, changing the case for keywords, indenting blocks, etc.)

Does the Stack Exchange Data Explorer have any kind of auto-formatting feature?

There is currently no such feature in the Data Explorer, at least not one that is documented in the help page.

Having said that, it's indeed a great , and let's hope the SE devs pick up on it!

EDIT:
As @animuson pointed out, since the Data Explorer is open source, anyone could file a PR to implement this feature.
