I’m a new user of Toad Data Modeler, previously having used Visio but decided to give Toad a try after having much issues with connecting Visio to MS SQL 2012 and wow, I’m impressed with the freeware version already.
I did a reverse engineer of one of our DB and it worked as expected, but I am wondering if there’s a way to not show the extra information for an attribute (column type, non nullable, etc.).
It’s all important data for sure, but I find it distracts me from the actual model a bit as the width of every entity is greatly increased. I found a way to only show keys but not to only show the attribute names hence making the entity box much more compact. I can also manually adjust the width of each entity so that it hides what I am trying to hide but that’s a tedious task.
If I missed something obvious I’m sorry, thanks in advance!
