SqlDBM Release Update – September 27, 2019

Diagram Auto-layout |  Save Project at all stages | Fixed Bugs

The SqlDBM team is proud to announce the release of SqlDBM v.2.10 based on our roadmap/feedback.

Support for Auto-layout is Finally Here!

At SqlDBM, one of our core beliefs that we really strive to infuse into everything we do, is to truly listen to our users’ requests and feedback. A significant percentage of our users expressed that they would want the ability to auto layout the diagrams using SqlDBM.  We listened and actualized that.

With that, SqlDBM is very proud to present a fantastic enhancement to the tool – Auto-layout Support! With this feature you can improve your productivity as you develop and model your Data Warehouse. SqlDBM does the heavy lifting for you. You do not need to drag tables to make your diagram look beautiful and understandable, simply click on auto-layout icon as show below. This feature allows you to layout your tables automatically in two different ways: Top-Down layout as well as Left-To-Right layout.

Also, there are two ways this feature can be accessed:

  1. From the top menu toolbar
  2. Right click menu available on the diagram



Following video shows how this feature can be used and how beautiful diagrams look after auto-layout.


Force Save Project

Users can now save their project at any stage. Sometimes “Save” is disabled because we do not want to bother users if the change is not related to database, for example if user change the zoom setting or switch diagram/”subject area” etc. This is accomplished by providing “Forced Save” button as sub menu option from “Save”, when “Save” is grayed out.
