Hello Richard,

Thank you for the report.
Verified as described.

Not sure whether it is intentionally but CHAR() is also excluded in the SQL Editor when you try to create/alter table.

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

The "CHAR()" data type was added to the SQL and Model editors.

Thank you for the bug report.
