First hours on DBVis so I am still very much in the learning mode, using the Evaluation period (thank you).
Currently I seem to be unable to create a foreign key constraint between two MySQL InnoDB tables. The foreign key tab from the online documentation is simply missing in the GUI. The docs show a completely different view, where all table operations (foreign key, unique and check constraints) are nicely tab-grouped when editing a table.
What did I do: I double-clicked the table. A series of tabs opens up where the first tab "info" shows InnoDB engine, version 10. I clicked the Columns tab, tried Maximize Tab, tried Floating, tried Restore Hidden Tabs, to no avail.
There *+is+* a references tab, but that one doesn't allow me to create foreign key constraints.
Since I am also new to the Mac, I don't know yet how to create a screenshot. So here are the tabs that I *+do+* see:
- Row Count
- Primary Key
- Row Id
- Native DDL
I have now created the constraint at the command-line on the server, but there must be a DbVis-way. DbVis info:

Re: Foreign keys tab missing
It sounds like you are looking for the Alter Table action. You find it in the right-click menu for a selected table node, and also in the Actions menu button in the upper right corner of the Object Views tab for the table (the one you get when double-clicking the table node, with all the sub tabs you listed).
