SPD 2013 - New External Content Type button - nothing happens

Using Microsoft Online (Office 365) hosted SharePoint 2013

Trying to setup a connection to a SQL database stored on our office network from it. I've setup BCS's "Set Metadata Store Permissions" and stored credentials in Secure Store. Trying to create the new external content type with SPD 2013. On SPD 2013, the New External Content Type button in the ribbon is enabled, but nothing happens when I click on it.

Do I need in import a "model" of the SQL database into BCS before I can create a new External Content Type?  If so, how do I generate one from our SQL server?

Sorry,  there was no response here for a few weeks, so didn't bother keeping it active.

I solved my own problem by uninstalling and then downloading and reinstalling SharePoint Designer 2013.  So the issue was something internal to SPD 2013.
