ERD Notes and new relations

Postby Justin_Maxwell » Fri Mar 25, 2016 8:54 pm

Hi.

I see in the Features list it says: "Editing custom diagrams you can create notes and table connections (relations).", and at this site (http://community.actian.com/forum/blogs ... grams.html) I found mentioned here in the forum, it says: "You can manually draw connecting lines if the information to do that wasn't available in the form of referential integrity constraints in the database. You can also add notes to the diagram."

But I can't find how to do either of those things.

Dragging column names gives me a white 'x' where ever I try and drag to. And I've looked everywhere but I can't find anything to do with adding notes. I'm probably not seeing something obvious...

Thanks.

Hi,

To be able to edit diagram contents you have to create custom diagram (ctrl+N->DBeaver->ER Diagram).
Then you can drag-n-drop tables to this diagram (from any number of connections), make logical relations, notes, etc.

Yup, that's what I'm doing.

Starting with a blank diagram I can drag on tables no problem at all.

But nothing I try lets me connect columns, or add a note, etc.

I've tried every kind of dragging one-column-to-another I can think of. I can't guess at how to add a note, other than dragging out a box on the diagram changes the cursor to cross-hairs, but it disappears as soon as I let the mouse button go...

Click on the top-left button and tools toolbar will show-up.
Then you can use Connection and Note tools.

This ain't very obvious, I know, but this is a standard Eclipse GEF look-and-feel.
