ER Diagraming tools

By  Jun 23, 2008

Topics: Data

I've used quite a few products in the past to design databases, from large tools like ERWin to smaller tools like those inside SQL Server itself.

I'll be honest - I don't like the Database Diagram tool in SQL Server Management Studio. For one thing, it doesn't conform to any standards, and it is "active", which means that if you make a change you're in danger of saving the changes directly to the database.

What tools are you using for design?
