7.2.1.8 The View Tool

Use this tool to create a view on an EER Diagram canvas. When the table tool is activated, a schema list appears on the toolbar below the main menu, enabling you to associate the new view with a specific schema. You can also select a color for the object by choosing from the color list to the right of the schema list.

After selecting this tool, clicking the canvas creates a new view. To edit this view, right-click it and choose Edit View... or Edit in New Window... from the pop-up menu.

To activate the view tool from the keyboard, use the V key.

For more information about creating and editing views, see Section 7.3.3, “Creating Views”.
