Catalog Tree palette shows all the schemata
that are present in the
section of the
MySQL Model page. Expand the
view of the objects contained in a specific schema by clicking the
+ button to the left of the schema name.
This displays the following folder icons:
Expand each of these in turn by clicking the + button to the left of the folder icon.
Selecting an object in this palette displays its properties in the
Properties palette, which can be found in the
lower left corner of the page.
The Catalog Tree palette is primarily used to drag and drop objects onto an EER diagram canvas.
On Linux, there is a quirk in the GTK tree control, where a simple click always generates a new selection. To drag multiple objects from the Catalog Tree to the EER diagram canvas, you must perform the operation as follows:
Click the first item in the tree.
Hold the Shift key, click the last item, and do not release the Shift key.
Keep the Shift key depressed and commence the dragging operation.
Release the Shift key before you release the mouse button to drop selected objects onto the canvas.
This procedure also applies to use of the Control key when selecting multiple nonadjacent elements in the Catalog Tree.
You can toggle the sidebar on and off using the Toggle Sidebar button, which is located in the top right of the application.
