Background rectangles for grouping

pjakubowski 5 years ago updated by edeumers 5 years ago 2

It would be nice to have a way of grouping certain areas by adding a light rectangular background behind them. It may have a `name` property displayed in a top left corner.


  1. Show border [boolean] (or something fancier like border-width etc.)
  2. Name placement (decide when to place name: center or one of the corners)
  3. Group elements [boolean] (when checked moving rectangle or any element in it also moves everything on it)
  4. Match elements [boolean] (if checked table/notes should have similar colors as background rectangle)

Started to work with SqlDBM a few weeks ago. I really like it :-)

I would love to group my tables as well.
