After import of a DBDesigner model keys with INT, VARCHAR, and DECIMAL datatypes are displayed with details in doubled parentheses in the 'Main View'. This is not the case if the table is generated with the Workbench directly. I don't know if this have consequences on functionality.

An analysis of the *.mwb files shows that the imported details are stored in different tags compared to a Workbench generated table:

<value type="string" key="datatypeExplicitParams">(50)</value>
but         <value type="int" key="length">50</value>

<value type="string" key="datatypeExplicitParams">(10,2)</value>
but          <value type="int" key="precision">10</value>
               <value type="int" key="scale">2</value>

How to repeat:
Use file "aaa-test.xml" for import and store the new Workbench model as "aaa-test.mwb".
Compare to "aaa-new.mwb".

Suggested fix:
Modify your parser.
