Description:
The manual sates that the two Model menu items Object Notation and Relationship Notation "are not enabled unless an EER diagram tab is selected". This is not the case.

How to repeat:
1. Open a model tab and a related EER diagram tab.
2. From the diagram tab, select a setting for Model > Object Notation.
3. Close the diagram tab. 
4. Go to the model tab, select a different setting for Model > Object Notation.
5. Reopen the diagram tab, navigate to Model > Object Notation.
6. Note that the setting chosen from the model tab is checked.

The same behavior happens with Relationship Notation.

Suggested fix:
Disable the menu items from the model tab, or change the manual to reflect the current bahavior.
