Since I do not have the rights to re-open a bug (see 37008) I hereby report this issue via a new bug :(

I now have Workbench SE 5.0.22 and the bug still exists.

When I add a new column (type INT) all my Inserts data get lost.

How to repeat:
Just add Inserts data for a table and then add a new column

Suggested fix:
When adding a new Column the Inserts data can be extended with the default value or NULL.

When removing a column the Inserts data can be truncated by this column.

Thank you for the bug report. I could not repeat with a simple table using the 5.0.22SE:

INSERT INTO `table1` (`idtable1`, `col2`) VALUES (1, NULL);
INSERT INTO `table1` (`idtable1`, `col2`) VALUES (2, NULL);
INSERT INTO `table1` (`idtable1`, `col2`) VALUES (3, NULL);

values NULL were added for the new added column, could you please provide a test model file ready to add a new INT column and to verify the behavior reported.
Thanks in advance.

PS: Also I deleted the new column and the inserts were preserved.

Ok I agree that it is not so easy to reproduce the issue. Here the steps to reproduce it:

1) Create a table, e.g.

CREATE  TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `broca2`.`table1` (
  `i` INT NOT NULL ,
  PRIMARY KEY (`idtable1`) )

2) Create for the table some Inserts

3) Go to a different table and open for this table the column editor (just to change the focus to another table)

4) Switch back to the test table from step 1

5) Add an INT column to the table from step 1

6) Now the Inserts data are lost.

Thank you for the feedback. I was able to repeat with the last 'how to repeat' instructions.

issue is fixed. note that due to recent changes in insert-editor values for newly added columns aren't inserted automatically any longer.
this fix will be in 5.0.23

An entry has been added to the 5.0.23 changelog:

When a new column is added to a table Inserts data gets deleted.
