Arrange menu option applies only to objects
on an EER diagram canvas and is only visible if an EER diagram
view is active. The options under this menu item are as follows:
Align to Grid – Align items on the canvas to the grid lines.
Bring to Front – Use this option to bring objects to the foreground.
Send to Back – Use this option to move objects to the background.
Center Diagram Contents – Use this option to center objects on the canvas.
Autolayout – Use this option to automatically arrange objects on the canvas.
Reset Object Size – This option expands an object on an EER diagram. For example, if a table has a long column name that is not fully displayed, using this menu option will expand the table making the column visible. This menu item is not enabled until an object is selected.
Expand All – Use this option to
expand all objects on an EER diagram. This option will
display a table's columns if the object notation supports
expansion. Some object notations, such as
Classic, do not allow for expansion or
contraction. Indexes will not automatically be expanded
unless they were previously expanded and have been collapsed
using the Collapse All menu option.
Collapse All – Undo the operation performed by Expand All.
