16.6.7.6. Creating Notes

You can add notes to a database only from the Model Notes section of the MySQL Model page. Notes are typically used to help document the design process.

16.6.7.6.1. Adding Notes

Double-clicking the Add Note icon in the Model Notes section of the MySQL Model page adds a note with the default name of note1. If a note with this name already exists, the new note is named note2.

Adding a new note automatically opens the note editor docked at the bottom of the application. Using the note editor is described in Section 16.6.7.6.2, “The Note Editor”.

Right-clicking a note opens a pop-up menu with the following options:

  • Rename

  • Cut 'note_name'

  • Copy 'note_name'

  • Delete 'note_name'

The Edit Note ... option opens the note editor. Using the note editor is described in Section 16.6.7.6.2, “The Note Editor”.

The cut and copy options are useful for copying notes between different schemata.

Notes can only be added on the MySQL Model page.

16.6.7.6.2. The Note Editor

You can invoke the note editor by double-clicking a note object in the Model Note section on the MySQL Model page. Doing this opens the note editor docked at the bottom of the application. Double-clicking the note tab undocks the editor. Double-click the title bar to redock it. Any number of notes may be open at the same time. Each additional note appears as a tab at the top of the note editor.

Using the editor you can change the name of a note or its contents.
