Can't open the "Database Diagrams" in SQL 2012 ssms

Hi,
I followed the instruction and put my self and SA as owner of this database in the File property.  I refreshed, I disconnected, re-connected to DB but I still get the message attached.  I check and rechecked and I am the owner in the file property.  The SQL is local on my PC and is setup for Windows authentication only.

How to fix this?  Thank you.

Nothing attached...what is the message?

Maybe the q subject is supposed to be the error message (?), but it's not complete enough.

Are you a member of the db_owner database role ?

Do you get the expected database owner name when you do this:
SELECT  name, SUSER_SNAME(owner_sid)
FROM sys.databases
WHERE name = 'yourdatabasename'

I ran this and nothing is selected
SELECT  name, SUSER_SNAME(owner_sid)
FROM sys.databases
WHERE name = '[AdventureWorks2012]'

I guess just setting myself in as owner of this database in the File property isn't enough.  I look at under Security expanding that with server Roles still doesn't show db_owner database role.  Where can I find that to add myself?  Thank you.

Try:
...
WHERE name = 'AdventureWorks2012'

Ah!  That worked.  It does select and return my name.   Then why I kept getting the error message when I click on the Database Diagram?  Thankl you

Never mind.  It stops giving the error message when I click on the DB Diagram.  Don't know why.
