Max size of model in SQL Data Modeler?

How many objects is the maximum useable in a model in SQL Data Modeler. I reverse engineered a schema (see previous posts - thanks to all that helped) which contains 1000+ tables (a candidate for re-factoring if ever I saw one!) but Data Modeler is struggling to display them and is performing very sluggishly. I can pull the same schema into Oracle Designer and that works ok, as does ERwin - is there something I can do to improve Data Modeler's performance?


Or would you folks recommend cutting up the model into smaller chunks, which will be slightly difficult as it is a bit of a rat's nest.
