Ah, okay, I'm just somewhat blind and/or ignorant :) I'm using
IBOConsole for 90%
of my work and IB Expert for some more difficult tasks. IBOConsole displays the
descriptions for tables, views, storec procedures, etc. but neither for fields
nor for the whole database.
IB Expert shows it for pretty much everything (except the database),
but I didn't
notice it before.
