Columns can grow huge and grouping of columns matters for a clean workflow. Currently you need to move a newly created column from the bottom of the list by dragging it up, and sometimes you'll need to move up the view as well, so this process can be tedious, however is not something that's a daily occurrence for everyone.

In HeidiSQL when you add a new column it will add the item under the cursor.
I'd prefer to use Workbench but when using tables with large column numbers I have to use HeidiSQL for some table alters because of this issue.

If we can have the insert key or right clicking with an insert new row at cursor option, that'd help tremendously.
