I'm trying to switch to Workbench after MySQL Query browser, and I'd like to have column comment displayed on the right side of columns grid, like it was in old MySQL Query Browser. There is a lot of white space there, and having editable comments on the same row with column's name would be very useful to describe or quickly understand structure of table.  Further improvement could be ability to choose columns displayed - maybe in another context, having collation shown could be important.

How to repeat:
Invoke Alter Table dialog. You'll see that column comment is editable and displays only on footer.

Suggested fix:
Add at least display of column comments in columns grid. Should be not a big deal.
