Entity Relationship Software for OS/X

I'm having difficulty finding something equivalent to Visio in OS/X that's able to draw sophisticated Entity Relationship Diagrams.

Would anyone be able to suggest something worthwhile?

I second the recomendation for Omni Graffle .. by far the most comprehensive and flexible graphing tool for OSX.

There is a simpler, freeware application called Dia

Does omnigraffle actually let you write out actually Entities and attributes for the entities though?

I saw it can do just the logical entity relationship, but I cannot pop specific attributes per entity into each table as I can in visio.

Not as far as I know.. I don't think it goes that far.. send a quick email to Omni Group.
I'm afraind you may be stuck with Visio for the moment

G'day,

Are you writting up a schema for a database?

The other option I suggest is if you have an intel Mac is running CrossOver and run Visio on the Mac with out windows.
