It is impossible to set an arbitrary length for any index.
Indexes can be defined only with the default length.

How to repeat:
1. edit a table
2. go to the "Indexes" tab
3. create or select an existing index
4. on the "index columns", in the center, select a column
5. try to change the "length" from 0 to any value (eg. 100)

What happens:
once you hit enter, the value is set back to 0.

What should happen:
once you hit enter, the new value is stored
