Import of large XML file doesn't work

Nick Rossiter 2 weeks ago updated by Adam Mościcki 5 days ago 3

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.

Best regards,

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

Francesco Tortora 4 weeks 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 2 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 3 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.

Add option to hide all types and only display field names

Matt Kuntz 7 years ago updated by Chris Waters 3 months ago 2
We had an issue recently where, while going over a model, people kept getting confused or stuck on types as we were working on it. It would be nice to be able to hide types while editing and on export.

Also, I saw another request for hiding FKs, which fits in nicely.
