I can't remember if the Database Perspective was available back then or not. If it was, I must have tried it and decided it would not work.
I know about that max row setting.
The nice thing about Quantum it too has a setting like that, but it also has an icon to quickly request the rest of the rows. No need to go change a setting.
I have yet to find a SQL plug-in that has this feature. Or I missed it because it was not obvious. :)

At some point I will give the Database perspective another shot. Quantum is just so quick and dirty. Kind of like I still use text files for my notes instead of Word or OneNote. :)

Scott, were you unable to use the Database Perspective because of the default "Max row count" of 600?

Preferences->Data Management-> SQL Development-> SQL Results View Options.

The preferences page includes the max row count and max display row count options.
If you have Max Row Count set to a number other than Zero, then any statement you run may only run over that many rows.

I eventually found this preference after my update statements would only affect a subset of the data.
