BLOB editor converts \func to NULL on forward engineering

On a table with a primary key field id (binary(16)) the insert tab for a model shows the field correctly to be a "BLOB".

Opening the blob editor and adding "\func UUID()" this statement will not be treated as a function when doing forward engineering.

Step 1: Open model and add a table

Create table with one field named "testId" of type "BINARY(16)".

Step 2: Add data to table via 'Inserts' tab

Apply "Mark this field as function/literal" and open blob editor to set this field value to

\func UUID();

Step 3: Forward engineer model

Generated CREATE TABLE statement looks good:

`testId` BINARY(16) NULL)

Now there the trouble starts: The generated data insert statement does show "NULL" instead of the function added in the blob editor:

INSERT INTO `test` (`testId`) VALUES (NULL);

Any idea why this is going wrong? Looks like a bug in the blob editor.

The intention of doing this in the insert tab is to use "\func UUID_TO_BIN('my UUID goes here',1) to manually insert UUIDs via inserts tab. But if even generating UUID() fails...

Cheers, Michael
