Compare and Report Differences view differences not showing corretcly

I am trying out the "Compare and Report Differences in Catalogs" feature of MySQL Workbench (6.3).

I was excited to find out that you can compare a script against a live database. This tool is the only one I found that can do that.

So, I did the following:
- Reverse Engineered Database selecting a single database that has 4 tables and 4 views .
- File/export/Forward Engineer SQL CREATE Script to save as model.sql.
- Updated the model.sql added a column to a table1, renamed a column in view1 and removed view2.
- then ran Database/Compare Schemas with source being the modified model.sql and target being Live Database Server (same one that model and script created from above.
- The difference report comes back correctly identifying the table1 column addition but reports that all views have been dropped.

I can successfully compare two Script Files but get the same result anytime to compare anything to a live database as a target.

Has anyone else experienced the same issue? I am hoping I am just missing a an option during the compare.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
