Autodoc - Dia Output
The two outputs differ only in line style. One has straight lines (good for large schemas) and the other uses the auto-placing zigzag lines (good for small schemas).
There are a number of things that the Dia output is not capable of accomplishing by itself, including placing the boxes in a reasonable location. This feature will need to be implemented in Dia itself.
Until the Dia people implement a best placement algorithm, you will need to move the various boxes around on your own. For convenience, schemas have been grouped so that you can do a coarse placement of schemas prior to placing individual tables into the proper location. Ungrouping the tables is accomplished by selecting the Schema Object,-> -> .

Example 1. Dia Output
After moving around all of the relations to reasonable locations, have Dia export the image as a png file for use in web pages or other material. Below is one possibility for the Autodoc regression database.
