when you have more columns than the window can support (in a table definition) the scroll bar does not behave correctly and columns off screen cannot be scrolled to`

How to repeat:
create table
create columns until there are more columns than window can accommodate without scrolling.
Scroll to first column
Try and scroll to last column and edit it

Suggested fix:
make the window larger to accommodate all fields without the need for scrolling
will only work upto a point

Thank you for the problem report. Can you be more specific about the problem you have? I can easily change whatever attribute of the last (12th or so) column on Ubuntu, using scroll bar. 

The only problem I see is that scroll bar itself does NOT change position properly when, after changing last column, list of columns is scrolled so that the first column is visible. But click on any visible column restore its proper position.

ok so you can use the mouse to scroll - but it's still annoying when you are manually keying in a number of fields and having to scroll about to get to where you want - was not expecting the use of the mouse to be mandatory.

Well, keyboard also allows to scroll (PgUp, PgDn, arrow keys), but the fact that after you added last column the list is scrolled to the top while scroll bar shows some intermediate position is a minor, but annoying bug, indeed.
