When you create or edit a column it is especially hard to select column details as you have to click on the column name and then select the details you would like.  If you are in any other area of the column other than the name of the column, that column will become deselected and the attempted click of the column details will not be clicked.

How to repeat:
1. Create a new EER Diagram
2. Create a new table
3. Double click the table
4. Navigate to Columns
5. Create a new column
6. Click on the column type of the column
7. Attempt to select a column detail on the right hand side

Suggested fix:
The column would not lose focus.  Essentially if anywhere within the column row, column details should be selectable.  The best implementation would be to utilize anywhere on the row, that row would be in a selected state and if the column details are attempted to be modified that column row must be selected.
