The EER Diagram view has no "rename" option for a view.

How to repeat:
Add a new view to the EER Diagram canvas. You cannot rename it by right clicking it or by opening the view editor. You must return to the "MySQL Model" page to rename a view. This disrupts the work flow.

Suggested fix:
Allow a view to be renamed from the EER Diagram page.

I just discovered that you can change the name of a view by using the Properties palette so the description given in this bug is inaccurate. However, why not let users change a view name from the view editor? Currently, the "Name" text box is disabled. In the table editor you can change a table's name using the "Name" text box.
