Events do not appear to be supported, however since MySQL 5.1 is now GA, and this is the next generation of the MySQL Tools, they really should be.

I noticed this problem when I had Workbench reverse-engineer my .SQL schema file. It includes an event, but this event is nowhere to be found.

How to repeat:
Try to add an event in the Workbench, or try to import an event as part of a Schema .sql file.

Suggested fix:
Events should be displayed under Routines or as their own section in the Physical Schemata section. They should also possibly be add-able to Routine Groups? I should also be able to create an Event via Workbench.

11 years later and events are still not "supported" in MySQL Workbench, is there a reason for this? It would be good to able to be see events directly in the interface and have them as part of the model when creating a DB. ATM, the only way to see events in Workbench is to use the SQL command `show events`.
