Completing links between tables and shortcuts

69 Views Last edit Jul 18, 2018 at 12:32 AM 3 rev

Sometimes I need to add the same table in a PDM more than once to a diagram to make it more readable. I pasted the table as a shortcut, let's say, Table1:2 (PD adds colon 2), and I moved it closer to the table it is linked to, Table2. Then I wanted to add the existing FK link between Table2 and the Table1:2 shortcut. I selected the two tables and pressed CTRL+F5 to complete links, however, PD adds the links against the Table1:1 (original table) and Table2, not between Table1:2 and Table2.

Is there a consistent way to add the link between Table1:2 and Table2?

If I drag and drop the relationship, weirdly enough, PD adds the tables in the diagram (as shortcuts) but not the link.

And one more thing, the color for the relationship link between Table1:1 and Table2 is red/burgundy while all other links are blue. I am not sure why, I don't recall changing the color of the link. Is there a legend for default colors?
