Dbdiagram.io - locate selected table in diagram

Hey there fellow DB designers :smiley:

I really appreaciate the work and time which has been spent to create such a wonderfull tool.
But recently I regularely run into the following issue: I have a hard time finding specific tables in my diagram. Let me explain:

As you can see in the attached image I have a diagram with around 90 tables.
Now sure, I can zoom into a specific section of the diagram and “climb” my way through the schema to finally get to the place I want.

But it would be so much better if there is some sort of button next to the table name in the editor or a keyboard shortcut to specifically zoom into the table I have selected on the left side.

Basically like you can “Go to definition” with function calls in any modern IDE I would love to see a similar feature here as well so I don’t have to scroll in and out so much to find my desired table.

What do you think?

Thank you for your suggestion, @LordSimal.

We totally agree with you. This capability is something we intend to include in our editing enhancements. We believe it will be implemented soon.

The enhanced editor is an excellent update but I don’t see how this solves this feature request, unless I can’t see the appropriate command?

You can double-click a table in the diagram to focus the DBML window but how do you go from the DBML to focus the diagram?

CMD (or Strg for Windows) + Left click on the table in the DBML
