Why does the reverse engineer create two diagrams? One called Reverse Engineer and other called RE:Schema 'dbo'

gregs 2 weeks ago updated by Support 2 weeks ago 1

When you reverse engineer from MS SQL there are two diagrams:

  • Reverse Enginner
  • RE:Schema 'dbo'

Is there a reason for this and can I simply delete one of them without issue?

When RE happens, the system creates 

- one diagram called "Reverse Engineer" to show all tables of RE

- one diagram for each Schema. In case users RE multiple Schemas then there will be one diagram for each Schema.

Users are free to delete these diagrams, as "Diagrams" are just windows to show the DB Objects, and deleting diagrams does not delete the underlying tables.
