Saving a Diagram

Top Previous Next

You can save a diagram by choosing either the Save or Save As commands from the File menu. Database Designer for MySQL saves the diagram into a specially formatted .mdd file, which contains the diagram and its properties. You can also save the current diagram by clicking on the Save (file-save) button in the Standard toolbar.

If you are saving a diagram for the first time, select the Save command, then type in a "file name" for your diagram and specify the location on your computer where you want to save it. Diagram file names must meet the requirements of a standard Windows filename.

If you are saving a diagram that was already saved, use the Save command to replace the file contents or the Save As command to save the diagram with a new name or to a location.
