i see on the web that mySQL workbench is supposed to display/print a schema diagram given a live db on a server.
however, i cannot find how to have it automatically draw the lines for existing dependencies.

any tips on this tool or other tools for generating diagrams from an existing live db?
i used to use flashmyphpadmin which produced great diagrams (move tables and the existing dependency lines would rubber band), but that tool no longer works.

On my version of workbench, when I reverse engineer a database, I get the relationship lines showing just fine. Have you tried that
