file Entity Relationship Diagram Support

Hi all.

Once again I don't know if this is in the right place or if this belongs in something like the module development section. If it is in the wrong place I apologise and request that a mod please move it.

I've been looking around but haven't managed to find anything on this. Does Modelio support ERDs or is there perhaps an extension someone has built to add ERD functionality?

Class Diagrams work but they lack things like arcs for some associations that I would like to use.

A loosely connected issue is that I have been trying to use Class Diagrams as an alternative to ERDs but when I try to create a recursive association back to the same class it basically just shows up as an arrow as opposed to the way it traditionally looks in ERDs where the association line curls back on the entity.

Sorry, we do not have a support of ERD. The closest thing we have that might look like arcs is creating a link between two other links...

This seems to me like a bug fixed in Modelio 2.1. Recursive links were created/unmasked with an invalid path. If you're still on 2.0, the 'redraw link' command from the contextual menu should allow you to bypass the initial problem, and draw the link as you need. :)
