To add text objects to an EER Diagram, use the
Object tool on the vertical toolbar. Make sure that the
EER Diagram tab is selected, then right-click
the text object icon on the vertical toolbar. The text object icon
is the rectangular icon found below the label icon.
Clicking the mouse on this icon changes the mouse pointer to a text object pointer. You can also change the mouse pointer to a text object pointer by pressing the N key.
Text Object tool changes the
contents of the toolbar that appears immediately below the menu
bar. When the
Text Object pointer is active,
this toolbar contains a color chart list. Use this list to select
the color accent for the new text object. The color of your text
object can be changed later using the
Create a text object by clicking anywhere on the EER Diagram
canvas. This creates a new text object with the default name
text1. To revert to the default mouse pointer,
click the arrow icon at the top of the vertical toolbar.
Right-clicking a text object opens a pop-up menu. These menu options are identical to the options for other objects. However, since a text object is not a database object, there is no confirmation dialog box when you delete a text object.
