Are the property mappings definitely right in the example given last feb? They both map the data to the Label text so, depending on which I have first in the list, either the name of the entity, or the attribute list gets set. I can't see that I've messed up any other settings, but probablky I have. Shouldn't a Node with Attributes have something other then Label text to which to map?
I'm using the latest yed version BTW.
seems to me that in case of attribute lists - when mapped to label 2 - the "fit Node to Label"-function doesn't work. I get the entity names (label No. 1) to fit into the node, but the attribute lists are written over the lines in width and in height....or am I missing something?
This happens for an "Entity with Attributes" ERD node, right? Unfortunately, the attributes label works in a way we have not taken into account for properties mapper. I have added a corresponding request for improvement to our list of improvements for yEd. Due to the tremendous size of that list I cannot make any promises when or even if we will be able to include this improvement in yEd.
The ERD configuration depicted in the screen shot assumes that "Entity with Attributes" nodes from the "Entity Relationship" palette section are used. These nodes have two node labels; the first mapping (Name -> Label Text) sets the first label's text and the second mapping (Attribute List -> Label Text) sets the second label's text:
You are not required to use entity nodes to make that configuration work, however, you will have to use nodes that have at least two labels. To add an additional label, right-click a node to open its context menu and choose "Add Label".
