When viewing the table structure of a complex table, often there is a delay in rendering the page because the drop-down menu under the "Action" column is being created.
This is quite annoying.
In previous versions all 7 action icons were displayed under the Action column.
Now the following functions have been moved to a drop down menu: Browse unique values, add primary key, add unique key, add index, add fulltext index.
This drop-down menu makes these functions slower to access and causes an uneccessary UI delay on older machines/browsers whilst the menus are built/rendered.

I propose that you should be able to disable this action drop-down menu through configuration, and revert to the full iconified view of previous versions.

Cheers, B

    Note: this behavior was already there in version 3.4.0 (released May 2011).

    Moved back to Feature requests because you are requesting a new config.

    I've prepared a patch for this request (on localhost) but I don't know how new config value should be called. Any suggestion?

    HideStructureActions (true by default, which gives the current behavior).

    This requested feature was implemented in the repository and will be part of a future release; thanks for suggesting.

    Awesome stuff. Thanks for adding this feature! I was finding the rendering of those menus really bogged when viewing the structure of a large table over a remote connection or using an older machine.
