Where is Safe Updates Option in Linux MySQL Workbench

Today I needed to disable “Safe Updates” for MySQL Workbench on Linux Mint. The checkbox is located at different locations depending on the OS you use. For Linux the checkbox to disable “Safe Updates” is located at Edit > Preferences; there in the  tab SQL Queries.

In the Windows version of MySQL Workbench the preferences menu is also located at Edit > Preferences. But “Safe Updates” is located at SQL Editor menu element.

20 years of coding and working as software engineer but I am still eager to learn more. I am very passionate when it comes to open source, Linux and Java. But I made my peace with Windows long ago to fully enjoy my PC gaming hobby. I have a soft spot for 90s electronic music and Babylon 5. In the evenings you will find me roaming the endless space in Warframe (IGN k05h).
