Version: (using KDE Devel) Installed from: Compiled sources There's no way to show a relationship between a property in one "entity" and a property in another. The terminology has changed a bit but I still don't see how this can really be used for showing relationships between columns in various database tables. The canonical example would be showing a how an index field in one table was used in another. i.e. if I have a table with "Trees" and another with "Branches" and there's an "ID" column in "Trees" and a "TreeID" column in "Branches" there needs to be a way to show that those two columns in the different tables are linked.

good idea! a new arrow for 1:1, 1:n and n:m relations between entities would be a nice first step. then being able to use these relations for table-fields, too, would be a very nice thing! at the moment i only have a 1:n relation button for my ER-diagram entities :-( thanks umbrello guys for your good work! stefan
