Whenever you do a model migration on a SQL Server Physical Model, it forgets to add the schema to the first mentioned table. Should be an easy fix.

Add user defined data types or domains

Robert Clark 7 years ago updated by Laiba Shahid 3 weeks ago 10

When creating our databases with thousands of fields we use domains / user data types. This allows us to use a specific defined data type, like "ID Key" for all primary keys, to ensure they are all uniformly the same data type. Additionally it would allow us to change the data types of all the fields that would apply without having to go to each field manually and changing it. This is a must for us to purchase a database modeling product.

Import of large XML file doesn't work

Nick Rossiter 2 months ago updated by Adam Mościcki 1 month ago 6

Hi there, I am trying to import an xml file that I created using the Vertabelo Reverse Engineering tool. However, when I try to import it, nothing seems to happen when I click the import button.

The file is rather large, the database that I reverse engineered it from has 600+ tables with 10000+ columns, 600+ views and 1000+ references resulting in an xml file of ~17MB.

I reverse engineered a subset of tables from the same database giving a much smaller file and that imported with no problems so I'm wondering if it is a size issue. Is there a maximum allowed size of the import file?

We have increased the limit to 30MB.

Please try again.

Export and Import via Excel (for Physical and Logical Model)

Francesco Tortora 2 months ago 0

Could you please evaluate to allow export and import logical and physical data model via csv?

When we design a data model we map all the entities and attributes using Excel (specially for LOGICAL model), in vertabelo the only option to import logical and physical is using xml file.

I am now getting spam emails from companies through Vertabelo.
I pay a subscription and now, for that, I am getting spammed with advertising.
This is outrageous.


hide data types

Chris Waters 4 months ago 0

Do you have an option when viewing or especially when generating a diagram as a pdf, etc. to hide the data types for the columns?  Often, you can get a more complete view of complex diagrams that way and usually without loss of too much info.

Dark theme

It would be nice to work with diagram using dark theme. I suppose many developers use dark-theme editors. and it's hard for eyes to switch to light themes.

Displaying a grid background

Gary Sangha 7 years ago updated by Marthinus Bosman 4 months ago 5
It would be nice to have an option to set the background to a grid or have some sort of other 'guideline' feature that makes it easier to line up tables etc. so they a straight and look good

Grid functionality has been alredy introduced. You can find this feature in Format tab of Model properties (right panel) as shown on the following screenshot.
