The behavior of the Synchronize wizard was inconsistent when cancelled and re-run. (Bug #36177)
Using Generate Schema Diff Report resulted in a crash. The crash was caused by improper handling of an invalid foreign key in a table. While this issue is correctly reported by a validation module, in Standard Edition Generate Schema Diff Report didn't handle that correctly. (Bug #37393)

After reverse engineering an SQL create script and drawing some EER diagrams, a subsequent import of the same script destroys the EER diagrams. All tables in the catalog are updated, but the reference of the table in the diagram to the table in the catalog is lost. The tables in the diagram are still visible, but do not correspond to the table in the catalog.
After closing and re-opening the file, all diagrams are empty and it is impossible to delete the diagrams. However, in the overview in the upper right corner, the tables placed in the diagram are still visible. (Bug #36381)
The export filter did not properly filter tables. (Bug #36739)
