phpMyAdmin allows someone creating a table to add table comments:
The problem is, when you view a table it doesn't show the complete contents of the field if it's longer than a specific number of characters (I don't know what the limit is.) This isn't a problem when I'm creating my own tables; I just limit the comments. But I'm using a Drupal install, and a table created by a contrib module has a description that's longer than what displays. Unfortunately what I can see is completely unhelpful:
Is there a way to force it to display the full value of the comments? It's not available to be edited when you view the table structure, which seems like of silly - you can change the fields (even after there's data in the table) but can't change the comments. Is there somewhere else I can see it?
