When altering a table, if you use the keyboard to go up and down the column rows the focus can put on the column editor form at the bottom of the panel.  Seems to only occur when one of the PK/NN/UQ/BIN/UN/ZF/AI columns is checked.  The focus also goes to the checked checkbox in question.

So then you click on one of the column detail rows to return your focus and it does not select the row but turns it light blue and clears the 'Default' value.  Clicking one more time gives you true focus but the 'Default' value remains blank on the table and on the form below.

How to repeat:
If AI is checked, pressing the up arrow key from the column definition row just below it will cause the focus to be lost to the checkbox in the form below.  Unchecking AI and checking another column will cause that checkbox to be the one that gains focus.

Suggested fix:
update the state of checkboxes in the form below without giving them focus
