MySQL Workbench Manual  /  Database Design and Modeling  /  Schema Synchronization and Comparison

9.5 Schema Synchronization and Comparison

Database change management is a complex process that involves maintaining different versions of database schemas and manually modifying existing databases. To help with this administration task, MySQL Workbench includes schema synchronization and comparison utilities. You can compare two live databases, two models, or models with live databases, to visually see the differences and optionally perform a synchronization routine.

The part of the statement that says "You can compare...two models...." is incorrect. With a model open as the source, the option "Model Schemata" is disabled for the destination.
