Title: How can I display the connecting line between a relationship name and its relationship line?
In r7.3, there is no line between a relationship name and its relationship line.
However, in r8 you can display a connecting line between the relationship name and its relationship line using the following steps:
- Turn on display logical or physical relationship name from the ER Diagram Display Editor under the RELATIONSHIP tab, which will allow the relationship name to show next to its relationship.
- Turn on the callout from the layout tab to show the lines.
NOTE : the connecting line will only be shown when you are moving the relationship name. That is by design. The connecting line shown below in the red box is for a relationship with the name of R/28 (figure 1).
- Bring up the ER Diagram Drawing Objects Editor by going to the menu Diagram | Diagrams Turn on the Display logical or physical relationship name using the RELATIONSHIP tab which allows the relationship name to show next to its relationship.
- Using the Layout tab, turn on Show callout in order to show the connecting lines.
