It would be nice if the toolbars could be hidden for those that don't need them. 
For example a power user wouldn't need the 'create table' etc buttons in the diagram view if he knows all the shortcuts (T for table). 

This frees up some screenspace allowing more of the useful information to be visible at one time. The main toolbar with the main toolbar with Open Document, Open Model from file etc is something I personally never use so I'd like to hide that as well.

How to repeat:
Just see the screenshot in the reply.

See the menu option  / its submenu for the suggestion.

Oh forgot about the hide menu option :)

I'd like to have a hide menu option although the purpose of this might be a bit more far-fetched. Anyhow, I'm used to the KDE desktop where most application allow you hide the menu bar at the very top using ctrl+m.  This frees up a little bit of space which can make a difference if you're working on a netbook.
(Doubt there are many using MySQL Workbench on a netbook, but even I despite using a 1920*1200 monitor like to free up some space by (temporarely) hiding that what I don't use.
