Release notes 6.2

17th May, 2018

New Features

Adding objects to ERD from navigation tree

Previously, to add an object to ERD you've had to use the object list on the right side of the screen. This could be cumbersome, especially when you've wanted to add objects from different documentations.

Now you can just drag any object you want to add from the navigation tree on the left side of the screen.

Drag objects from documentation tree

You can also drag entire branches to an ERD, eg. drag an entire module to the ERD to add all the tables and views included in it.

Adding objects from a different documentation to ERD

In Dataedo 6 it was possible to add objects from different documentaions to an ERD only if they had relations to existing objects.

Now you can add any object from any documentation to an ERD using the drag & drop feature described above.
