It should be possible to hide the gray index bar entirely. By default, this should be the case, as indexes are not very interesting from a design/modeling perspective. The gray bar is a real waste of visual space.

Currently, the only way to hide the bar is to hide all columns along with them by clicking the arrow in the top right corner of a table.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Offer a checkbox under "Tools" -> "Options..." -> "Diagrams" tab -> "Tables" group called "Hide Indexes" or "Hide Index Bar".

If this option is on, hide *all* gray bars and indexes (rolled out or not). If this option is off, display the bar (with arrow), so people can still roll out indexes on a per-table basis as is the case now.

It's already possible to hide the Index bar from table figures. Just select Model -> Object Notation -> Workbench (simplified)
