In a EER Diagram tab, I use to hide the Modeling Additions panel on the left side of the window, to have as much as drawing space. The panel does not remember it's state in the next Workbench session. It used to to keep it's state in older versions though.

How to repeat:
While on a EER tab, hide the panel, close Workbench and then start again and go to an EER tab. The panel will be visible.

Suggested fix:
I think that this should be an application setting, not a schema setting. Store it in appication settings, not in the schema (workbench) file.

Thank you for the report.
I think this could be considered a valid feature request i.e allowing to persist the settings of "Modeling Additions" panel for on/off.
