It would be good to be able to change the color in connection lines. (e.g. make it light grey, when these connections are not of great importance).

The problem is: In my 100-table schema I have languages table which is referenced by 30 other tables. These connections create a lot of confusion without any reason (e.g. when I see language_id in a table I know where it goes.)

It would be good to be able to make these lines light grey(almost white) so that my schema becomes more readable, focusing on the important relationships.

How to repeat:
Select a line. On the left there is no option for color.

Suggested fix:
Provide ability to set color on lines, or at least just change the tone (strong/normal/light).
