Easy creation of columns

Hi there,

how may one copy columns from one entity to another?

I’m missing these features as they are also present in Oracle Designer and i like to switch. :wink:
Also, having some kind of default column domain (for example: this is a date column, default is now() and it may NOT NULL). Very handy for creation of big diagrams.

thanks a lot,

Horray! I just found it. It’s in the model tab.
But i’m only able to move? I need something to copy…

Hello ened,

We will consider your request. Thanks for your post.

Hi Jick,

great thing, thanks.

Imho this would speed up development for database developers a lot.
Having something like domains and only pressing
alt-shift-c, entering ‘mycolumn:mydomain’ and everything get’s right would be my big dream for this software. The best thing then would be to update all affected columns by only updating the domain definition. :wink:

Best regards,
