  1. This update got some clunky ‘improvements’ to table structure editor in the diagram editor – the bottom pane that appears after double clicking on a table:

    1. By default the height of the area where table columns are listed is 0, which means no columns are visible – I have to enlarge the bottom pane to begin to see the columns. This wouldn’t be very problematic if the size of the pane was remembered but no – every time I close the pane and later edit another table the size is reset and the column view is hidden again. When I double click a table then certainly I want to see and probably edit the columns – why do I have to resize the pane every time?

    2. Lots of wasted space in the bottom table pane – the column comment field is huge (does anyone write long documentation in the column comments?) and most of the column properties are repeated twice – in the column list and in the bottom right section of the table pane. Who needs the same stuff repeated twice? This just wastes space.

    I hope the devs will redesign the table pane because the new one is more awkward to use and looks as if no one gave much thought to its usability. Now the pane is about twice as big and doesn’t really offer anything for the better.
