I have never created a database diagram, I added my first table under the assumption that it would add all related tables, not the case.  

Is this possible?

one thing sir,

 When drawing in SSMS, we add table there and if there are relationship between tables we can see it.

 But if we change anything, it will modify the table schema too, right ?

 What is the best tools to draw database diagram which for documentation only ?
