I can't create new table or alter existing table using mysql workbench.  Because "column name", "Collation", "Comments", "Data Type", "Default" and "Storage" fields are disabled.  

How to repeat:
Just try to create or alter table from MySQL workbench on windows 10.

Just increase the size of the table editor to see the column list.

Back to verified as the design is not user friendly and needs improvement.

Thanks for reopening this bug.  

I think this issue only affected by computer with resolution 1366x768 and below.  Mostly note books.  

Hiding/Decreasing Output pane is a temporary workaround.

I finally found a draggable handle that allowed me to resize the upper panel.  Believe me I had moused all over the screen looking for just that.  Clicking the double arrow had had no effect except to make even less visible, because the column name box was then totally obscured

There are useability issues in the Workbench - particularly for those who like me have failing eyesight.  Configurable Fontsize and more tooltips would help

Posted by developer:
Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.3.6 release, and here's the changelog entry:

On Windows 10, and with resolutions of 1366x768 and below, the default
table editor window did not show the table columns. 

As a workaround, the output pane could be resized or hidden.

Thank you for the bug report.
