New Move tool, Connection string manager and 22 other improvements in version 6.10

Version 6.10 is coming with 24 new features. It also fixes 16 bugs. The most important features are Move tool, Connection string manager and handling of existing file conflicts during batch export.

Move tool

Move tool allows you to move all elements below/above/on the left/on the right of the clicked point. You can move elements in two ways. If you use the left mouse button, you will add a free space in the diagram and move the elements in the direction of your cursor move. If you use the right mouse button (or left mouse button with CTRL pressed), you will remove a free space in the diagram and move the elements. The examples are below:

Move Tool - Add Space Move Tool - Remove Space

Connection string manager

If you work often with database and import tables to diagrams, this feature will save you a lot of time. You can save your connection strings and then later select them from the drop down list.
