MySQL Workbench Manual  /  ...  /  EER Diagram Editor

9.1.2 EER Diagram Editor

Enhanced Entity-Relationship (EER) diagrams are created by double-clicking Add Diagram in the Model Editor. You may create any number of EER diagrams just as you may create any number of physical schemas (databases). Each EER diagram opens in a tab below the toolbar. A specific EER diagram is selected by clicking its tab.

Clicking an EER diagram tab navigates to the canvas used for graphically manipulating database objects. The Vertical Toolbar is on the left side of the canvas.


This tool is for creating and editing EER diagrams for a model. To edit an existing database, either reverse engineer the database to create a model, or synchronize your model to a database. For additional information, see Section, “Reverse Engineering a Live Database” and Section 9.5, “Schema Synchronization and Comparison”.
