A few usability suggestions...

1. In the "Model Overview" window, double click on a table name opens the table description window. This action should remember the last tab of the table description window that was being viewed (e.g. "Columns", "Indexes", etc). When a new table is double clicked the table description window should open in the same view.

2. On the "Model Overview" window, pressing the key "Enter" with a table selected should have the same effect as "double click" on the table name i.e. it should open the table description window.

3. The table description window should have the functionality to pin a table description window (similar to the way it is provided in the "SQL Editor" application's "Query Results" window. This allows comparison of table descriptions in the "Data Modeling" application.

How to repeat:
As specified in the "Description" section.

Suggested fix:
