First of all, thanks for this usefull application.

I have two things:

- When you export you database to an SQL CREATE script on top of that script you have the following line:
In my ini file I have my sql-mode set to:
So every time I export my database I have to remove that line from the script in order to use my own sql-mode.
It would be nice if you could specify what settings will be used in the script.

- I like to add comments to tables and columns, MySQL has a limit of 60 characters for a table comment and a limit of 255 characters for a column comment. Unfortunately the workbench doesn't limit you whe writing a comment, wich will result in an error when excecuting the exported sql script, when you have specified a comment of to much characters. So you have to count the characters every time you write a comment.
It would be nice if the workbench would limit to the amount of characters allowed when typing a comment.

Good luck with the project.
