Right-click a connection to select it. When a connection is selected, it is highlighted and its properties are displayed in the properties palette. Connection properties are different from the properties of other objects. The following list describes them:

In most cases, you can change the properties of a relationship using the relationship editor rather than the Properties palette.

If you make a relationship invisible by hiding it using the relationship editor's Visibility Settings, and then close the relationship editor, you will no longer be able to select the relationship to bring up its relationship editor. To make the relationship visible again, you must expand the table object relating to the relationship in the Layers palette and select the relationship object. To edit the selected object, right-click it, then select Edit Object. You can then set the Visibility Settings to Fully Visible. The relationship will then be visible in the EER Diagram window.
