Hi, I love mysqlWorkbench, use it all the time.
Working with lot of tables, my schemas get crowdy.
I even sometimes work with two/three different schemas at the time.

When creating my sql requests in php, my preferred workflow is to have MysqlWorkBench opened in the background, so that I can see the schema while thinking at the request.
I do that all the time, and it helps me a lot.

It would help me even moreif I could temporarily highlight some tables, 
so that my eye can be focus on the tables I intend to join.

I noticed that when I hover a table, there is already a table highlight (green or orange). There is even a relationship highlight, but the feature I'm requesting is just about clicking a table to toggle highlight on it (but not on the relationships).

Hope this makes sense and will be implemented in the future.
It's more a visualization thing than an actual new feature, but it would make help me (and maybe others?).

Thanks, and thank you for having created MysqlWorkBench.
