On MacOS, the "Save to File..." and "Copy to Clipboard" buttons are missing from the "Review the SQL Script to be Executed" view.

On Linux (Fedora 27) and Windows 10, the buttons are present.

How to repeat:
Create or open a Model.

Database | Forward Engineer

Proceed through connection parameters, options, and select objects to "Review the SQL Scripts to be Executed".

Below the script window is an empty area where the "Save to File..." and "Copy to Clipboard" buttons normally appear.  Stretching, resizing, etc. do not reveal them.

Suggested fix:
Make the buttons visible.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 8.0.11 release, and here's the changelog entry:

The on-screen buttons that enable saving a script to a file or copying it
to the clipboard were missing from the review step of the
forward-engineering operation on macOS hosts.

Thank you for the bug report.
