Color/icon based Schemas identification for more readable Diagrams

Matteo 9 months ago • updated 3 weeks ago 5 1 duplicate

Hello,


First off, thank you for your hard work. SqlDBM is great!


I'm planning on using relationships accross Tables in different Schemas (in MSSQL, but it could be also in PostgreSQL in the future).

Diagrams are ok, but it's not always easy to see that Tables are in different Schemas.

It would be nice to have the option to select a different color for the text/name or define an icon for the Schema, to be more readable.

I was thinking also about the chance of adding "boxes"/panels inside the diagram to group Tables based on Schemas, but it get things more complicated maybe...


Thanks!

Matteo

Table/Schema Color Indicator 

Long awaited feature of ability to add colors to tables is finally here.


Now users can pick color indicator for tables to differentiate it from other tables by some logical reasons. Also, users can assign color on schema level as well, which sets the color of all tables under that schema automatically.

Dear Mattea,


 I absolutely agree with you, color based table visualization would be very useful. We have that feature in our development pipeline, which will be worked on soon. Also, based on votes on Ideas, it would help us with prioritization of features, for example if your this suggestion get more votes from other users as well then we can move this feature as higher priority in pipeline.


Thanks
