And the sad state of OSX ERD tools continues...

I am commenting upon the latest iteration of version 2; I refuse to pay for the upgrade.

I like this program because it is an ERD program, and its available for the Mac. I haven't found anything else in this category (OmniGraffle doesn't count).

My problems with it make it unusable, in my opinion. Firstly, the interface is kludgy and very un-aqua. Drawing tables is slow, and there is a delay between selecting clicking on something to drag it and when it begins to drag. This means that if I've already begun to drag before the program begins to drag then my mouse will be where I want it to be but the item being dragged will be offset to the position where it was when the program caught up with me. Hard to explain, but very annoying. Similarly, if I doubleclick on an object it seems to want to drag it around so if I don't click again in the same place before clicking in a text field (such as table name), then it will move the object to the location of the click.

My biggest problem, and the reason I refuse to use it, is that it crashes. At first I put up with it because I'm designing a huge DB right now. I made it a point to save after practically every change. Then, the worst scenario happened. In the middle of a save it crashed on me, completely zero-ing out the file and losing every bit of my work.

Use this new version at your own risk, I guess.

BTW, I'm on a G4 1ghz 1G RAM.
