I'm using the MySQL Workbench tool to export a database. However, the database data includes trigger data as well. How can I ignore the triggers and not include them in the generated SQL dump file?

I have taken a look at Advanced Export Options tab, it seems that there is no such option related to triggers. So, maybe you must use mysqldump with --skip-triggers option instead.
