Ability to identify identifying and non-identifying relationships from DDL

When reverse engineering from a DDL, a feature to automatically represent an identifying relationship by a solid line and a non-identifying relationship by a broken (dashed) line would be useful. Currently Vertabelo does not do this.



Vertabelo marks non mandatory references using a circle on the PK side of the reference line.

Here is a an example:


We already use dashed line for "shortcuts" representation. Here are more information about managing large diagrams using subject areas and shortcuts: https://www.vertabelo.com/documentation/database-model-elements/areas
