A function to organize the db layout
Under review
If you're looking for a function to align tables, there is an Align menu. Select two or more tables, to activate the menu. Then you can align tables as you like.

If you're looking for a function which will automatically lay out your tables, we do not plan to add this feature. Deciding where to put a table is part of the design process and it shouldn't be automated.
Whilst I agree to a point that table placement is part of the design process, I for one value visual clarity of my model over functional organisation. Lines crossing is just wrong!

Especially when you want to switch from any other tool to vertabelo and you import an existing database, this becomes a critical feature. The subject areas are not allowing to create relationships or copy existinng relationships into them is another problem.
