Having used other programs I was expecting a doubleclick in the diagram to put the focus on the 'editor' view.

For example if I have a table 'customers' with the field 'first_name VARCHAR(80)' then I would expect a doubleclick on that first_name row to put the focus on the first_name row in the editor view with "Column name" field in editable mode (the thing at the bottom with all the properties). 

This would make changing a column name as simple as doubleclicking the row in the diagram and then typing in the new name [enter]. 

How to repeat:
Create a diagram, add a table, add a column to the table, doubleclick the column in the diagram.
