All the diagram objects are available for editing. Just double click the object (table or relationship) to view/edit its properties within the corresponding editor.

Along to reverse engineering the tool allows you to apply best fit to the diagram.

You can also see the print preview of the diagram.

All the ER Diagram elements are customizable.

You can set table height option to resent it on the diagram as caption only, key fields, etc.

You can enable showing of the grid and snap to grid function. Then diagram will be covered by points disposed on the same interval between and when you will move the table or other object, its upper left corner "snaps" to the nearest grid point. Interval between grid points can be changed.

The Colors options are to attune the Designer appearance to your taste.
