I have a table on my server with 800 rows. These rows are an important part of my initial state for the project, hence it would be nice to have them as part of my model.

As I do not want to handcode all these rows, and I have not found a way to insert raw sql insert statements, I tried reverse engineering. The table is created as it should but there are no inserts.

How to repeat:
Create a table on the server and enter some data. Then reverse engineer it.

Suggested fix:
Make a checkbox in the reverse engineering dialog that says something like "create inserts?"

I'd like to know if this feature is been implemented?

This feature is too dangerous and would be way too easy to be misused with bad consequences (users importing entire big databases into a model). It's now also possible to import CSV files in a standard inserts editor.
