Description:
"form editor" cuts a long text (> ca. 250 chars) short and the scroll bars are inactive.

How to repeat:
Select a text field with more than 250 chars. After ca. 250 the remaining text is abbreviated to "...".

How to repeat:

// Create schema
create database if not exists test;
use test;
drop table if exists bug73234;
create table bug73234(id int not null auto_increment primary key, bug varchar(500))engine=innodb;
insert into bug73234(bug) values(repeat('A',300));

// WB->
use test;
SELECT * FROM test.bug73234;

Navigate to "Form Editor"

Observed that first 254 chars displayed + 3 DOTS(257).

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.2.2 release, and here's the changelog entry:

The form editor would only display up to 250 characters.

Thank you for the bug report.
