We are pleased that dbdiagram has assisted many individuals and teams in database design and implementation.

However, we believe database development does not end there.

While dbdiagram aids in the early stages of database design, dbdocs—a tool that helps you generate database documentation pages from the same database definition (DBML) in dbdiagram—can help you improve the transparency and visibility of your database projects by streamlining collaboration and communication with your team.

To take a further step in combining these two products, we're thrilled to announce a new feature: the ability to publish your dbdiagram to dbdocs!

Simply click the "Publish to dbdocs" button in the header, then choose whether to publish new database documentation or update existing projects in the dbdocs account associated with your email.

Publish dbdiagram to dbdocs


  1. What happens if I update a diagram after publishing it to dbdocs? Will the dbdocs document automatically update?

    Changes to your diagram will not automatically update the dbdocs document.

  2. What if I don't already have a dbdocs account?

    We’ll automatically create a dbdocs account with your email address.

As always, we appreciate your comments and suggestions. Please give this feature a shot and let us know what you think.

As developers, we understand that the editing experience is something that you care about! Hence, we are excited to share that the editor on dbdiagram has been improved significantly in this new release!

Improved look and better experience

Code Editor

Zooming to diagram elements from the code editor

No more wasting time searching for the correct table in complicated diagrams. You can easily find which part of the diagram you want from the code at any time.

To zoom in on a table/table group/relationship, use Cmd/Ctrl + Click or Cmd/Ctrl + F12.

Code To Diagram

Feel free to share your thoughts on our community.

To enrich your table/field descriptions, you can now use Markdown syntax to present code blocks, sample data tables, related URLs, and so on.

On the other hand, by changing the way we display notes (in a separate popup), we hope you will find it easier to read long notes that were previously narrowed in small tooltips.

Before: Old Table Notes|100x50

After: New Table Notes with Markdown supported|690x379

Feel free to share your thoughts about the feature on our community.
