I was able to reverse engineer a database from a mysql dump. The imported database does not have comments on the columns. I am trying to add them to the model, but they are not saved- as soon as I leave the currently active column the comments seem to disappear. 

How to repeat:
From a model, select a table by double clicking on the table in the physical schemata. Go to the bottom window and select the COLUMNS tab. Insert comments in the box labeled 'column comment' on lower right side. save model. Go back to the same table, column comment is blank. 

Suggested fix:
Not sure if this is the recommended process for adding comments- help menu is also not working for me (separate bug files). What I would like to see is the column comments saved so that I can forward engineer an alter script to put the comments back into the database.
