After a SELECT query has been executed, the "Apply" button on the bottom right is grayed - as it should.

Once data in a row has been edited, the "Apply" button becomes active - as it should.

However, once the Apply button is PRESSED (and the update is committed), it would be consistent if the Apply button would revert to the original "grayed" status, indicating that there are NO pending updates.

I find myself often going back and forth between windows and tasks. When I return to the MySQL workbench I often see the Apply button for one of the tabs being "active" and I (usually falsely) assume that I might have forgotten to "Apply" any updates and then press it again, usually causing unnecessary server roundtrips.

How to repeat:
Edit the a column in a row, then press Apply. Observe the not grayed vs. Active status of Apply button.

Suggested fix:
Have the grayed/active status of the Apply button represent the non-existence or existence of pending updates.
