  • Error: Auto layout dimension is too large (I need to model large number of tables)

    ERROR:
    Auto layout dimension is too large



    Repro:
    Menu: Tools\Import from Database (reverse engineer from existing database).
    MySQL
    I tried to import 260 tables.
    I received error message "Auto layout dimension is too large".
    I can load/import tables in batches. But the application will not auto-layout.

    Proposal 1:
    I need the application to support a large number of tables. Not sure why there's a limit. Obviously 260+ tables is too many to manually layout.

    Proposal 2:
    Have the option to disable the auto layout feature when reverse engineering.

    Proposal 3:
    Inform the user of the maximum number of tables allowed for auto-layout.

    System Info:
    Navicat Data Modeler 1.0.12
    Windows 7 x64 (6.1 Build 7601)
    16 GB RAM

    Thanks. Jake.

    Please try to set a large paper size to see if it can solve the problem. Choose File -> Page Setup from the main menu.
