Somethimes you want to switch between tables in your EER, to lookup something or just as part of your normal workflow.

The table editor turns to grey with no content at all when you double click a table and the editor is already open.

Reproducible behavior in 5.2.20 and 5.2.28. Worked in some earlier versions, but I sadly can not remember when this behavior was introcduced.

How to repeat:
Create a new EER, create two new tables and place them into your EER drawing window.

Now open one table for editing (double click in EER view), the table editor opens usually in the lower pane of your window.

Double click on the 2nd table to switch to it. Now just the tab containing the table name shows up, the editor portion of the window turns to grey (no content).

The two screenies were made with 5.2.20 OSS Beta 5783, as I don't have a fresher version on this computer. Same effect on 5.2.28, though.

Host is an Win XP Pro SP 4 for this one (5.2.20) and Win XP Pro 64 (latest SP) for 5.2.28.
