MySQL Workbench Manual  /  ...  /  Modifying a Layer Using the Properties Palette

9.1.7.2 Modifying a Layer Using the Properties Palette

Choosing "Edit" allows you to edit the layer name and layer background color, and the "Properties Editor" offers additional edit options.

When you select a layer on the EER Diagram canvas, its properties are displayed in the Properties palette. The properties accessible from the Properties palette apply to the appearance of a layer on the EER Diagram canvas.

In some circumstances, you may want to make a layer invisible. Select the layer and, in the Properties palette, set the visible property to False. To locate an invisible object, open the Layers palette and select the object by double-clicking it. After an object is selected, you can reset the visible property from the Properties palette.

For a list of properties accessible through the Properties palette, see Section 9.1.1.12, “The Properties Palette”. In addition to the properties listed there, a layer also has a description property. Use this property to document the purpose of the layer.
