Import SQL Not working

Looks like you recently updated the UI, removing the import DDL button from the toolbar and instead putting it under the left menu (with model name). Took me a while to find it, but eventually I did.  BUT, when I try to copy/paste my DDL (generated from existing SQL Server database) into the popup box, it does not behave as expected. Rather than pasting the text I have on my clipboard, it ignores the popup and simply adds a random table (unrelated to the DDL I have on my clipboard) to my model. Not sure when this change took effect, but perhaps it introduced a bug. 

Import SQL is not the only paste that is having issues. When I copy text onto my clipboard and then open my model, I can paste that text into the table name textbox. And I can paste that text into a column name for a table. But when I try to paste the same text (same clipboard session) into the table comments textbox, it instead pastes a random table into my model (the same table that it was pasting into my model when I tried to import the DDL as explained in my original comment.)  

As I continue to struggle on this, I realize that it's probably not as much a problem with Import SQL as it is a generalized (but not universal) paste problem.


You are right. We are working on it.
