Option Description

Organize by Object Owner or Organize by Object Type

Toggling these options has the following effect: Owner - the Navigator/Explorer displays objects for each user, categorized by object type. This display mode is most efficient if you are working with databases containing a high number of objects. Type - the Navigator/Explorer displays all objects, categorized by object type, for all users in the same list. This display mode speeds or slows performance in databases that contain many objects.
