I've attached a diagram that shows two problems:

1. The connectors are sometimes drawn parallel to their source or destination table. This is OK except at the start and end. Sometimes I can fix this by playing with the connection, sometimes I can't or it causes other problems. I never had this problem with DBDesigner4, so there's obviously some way around it.

2. I have a table that associates a record in one table to another record in the same table. The connector looks really weird--maybe it's just that I'm not super familiar with Crow's Foot notation.

The problems are circled in red on the attached JPG.

How to repeat:
See diagram.

Suggested fix:
Do whatever DBDesigner4 is doing or make connector paths more flexible in terms of editing.

Thank you for a problem report. Can you upload .mwb or .xml file to load that demonstrates the problem?

In response to Valeriy's request: I wish I could. I've given you a screen shot that demonstrates the problem, but I don't want to send you my schema nor do I have time to create a sample. Sorry.

The first problem has already addressed and the fix for that is in our repository ready for the next release. The second problem, where overlapping connections create those circles, is on our list.

Please confirm whether the problem persists in 5.0.15

I've checked 5.0.15-rc and I can confirm that both of the problems reported have disappeared from my diagram. Good job!
