I think that this suggestion is very simple to implement and very usefull too.

On the Object Browser tree when we expand table item, it shows the columns of this table, is it possible to add the data type info after the column name?

Something like " entity_key [varchar(32) not null] "

if is possible to change the icon on the columns, can it show if this columns are primary keys or foreign keys? is it possible to put some icon  to indicate is it is an indexed column?

thanks in advance

as a workaround, you can find the column/type information when you select a table in the bottom pane below the treeview

Closing as Won't Fix as the functionality is already available in the Object Info pane and the sidebar tree will not have enough horizontal to fit all that info.
