Can you provide an example?
Also your version is quite old, are you able to upgrade to the latest version, v3.2.20_09?
I am at a government agency on Version 3.0.04 and cannot upgrade without reason.
By random, I mean that the Tables appear in the diagram in an order that does not follow any logical or systematic order that I can discern:
For example: TIC... BNG... TMP... RET.... PUT.... ENT... DUM... TAL.... CLI... SER... ACC.... etc ....
the 'order' of diagram objects is not influenced by object name
You can change the layout to meet your needs, or try the Right-Mouse -> Auto Layout (1-4) to see if you find one more to your liking.
Right, but as I said in the original post there are many (100's) of tables and to try to redo the layout manually would be a lot of trouble and take a long time.
What is the "order" of the objects influenced by?
Auto Layout does not seem to make any noticable difference. Is ther a way to influence the Auto Layout layouts?
By the way, I appreciate your input and quick responses ...
There's an algorithm involved, and I'm pretty sure it's related to the number of grouped objects by relations, but instead of guessing I'll ask the developer to weigh in with the 'real answer.'
When working with larger models, I've found the #1 tip for making them easier to digest is to break them down into smaller SubViews. Have you experimented much with this feature yet? Also, you can right-click on a table in the tree and 'Go To Diagram' to find the object in the diagram.
I have thought about using the Subviews. It would involve creating several dozen of them.
And I was not sure, when putting it all together, that the Relationships would show up correctly ...
