Where did the relationships go in phpmyadmn?

Experts,

I've just discovered the ERD view in phpmyadmin.  It's wonderful!

With some mouse click, however, I've disabled the relationships when I toggle the Small/Big button on the menu.  It's really handy to see the fields along with the relationships, but poof!  they're gone.

They are  still visible in the "small" mode, but the fields aren't.

Can I somehow return to what I enjoyed before?

I believe what you are looking for can be located by selecting a database, then click on the Designer tab.

You may have misunderstood.

I have done as you suggested and am in the "Designer" view.  

However, once there, I can no longer see the relationships created between the tables.

Well, I can see them in "Small", but I can't see what fields are joined.  When I toggle "Big", the relationships that were visible a short while ago are no longer visible.

How do I get those relationships back in "Big"?

If you aren't see the relationship, then it is probable that the relationship doesn't exist.  Even while in "small" view, you should still see a relationship link between the related tables.  Try going into "big" view and recreating one of the relationships.  If you are able to leave the page, then return to see the relationship, then the original relationships probably aren't there.

Tried that.  Went to the "big" view.  The relationships all disappeared, as I described before.

When I attempted to create a new relationship, it failed.   "Error, relationship not added."  I checked carefully to see that I was connecting the primary key to a foreign key.

On the other hand, there is one relationship that stays in view.  And if you click on the table it relates to, it "sticks" to the mouse pointer and will not come unglued!

Wish there were some way to delete tables or clear things out and try again.  That doesn't seem to exist, either.

Deleted the db and restored from backup file.  Need to recreate all the relationships, but at least they behave as they should.

Tnx
