9.1.2 EER Diagram Editor

9.1.2.1 The Vertical Toolbar

EER diagrams are created by double-clicking the Add Diagram icon. You may create any number of EER diagrams just as you may create any number of physical schemata (databases). Each EER diagram shows as a tab below the toolbar; a specific EER diagram is selected by clicking its tab.

Clicking an EER diagram tab navigates to the canvas used for graphically manipulating database objects. The Vertical Toolbar is on the left side of this page.

Note

This tool is for creating and editing EER diagrams for a model. To edit an existing database, either reverse engineer the database to create a model, or syncronize your model to a database. For additional information, see Section 9.4.2.2, “Reverse Engineering a Live Database” and Section 9.5, “Schema Synchronization and Comparison”.
