In SqlDBM, database objects, such as tables, columns, and indexes have a "Description" filed in properties panel. You can use this field to add informative comments.

The comments in the description field help team members navigate a project and gain functional insights.

When you use the "Forward Engineering" feature, these descriptions get converted into SQL comments directly in the DDL you generate.

The Descriptions view mode (link below) makes it easy to edit table descriptions from a diagram.
