You can import DBDesigner4 projects using in
File -> Import -> Import DBDesigner4 Model

What do you mean? You can import/reverse engineer a SQL script
and then place (manually or automatically) its contents.

We will add auto-saving to avoid losing your work in case of crashes,
but I don't understand the "deleting an empty view" part, please
report a bug in if it's the case.

That has been fixed, please wait for the next release.

That has been fixed too.

The XML file is not intended to be read directly.
For the kind of thing you want we have a scripting and plugin
interface. So, you can just write a Lua script (or Python or any
of the other languages we will be supporting) to create
plugins that will export the model as Java classes or
create Rails model files or anything you want. We will
be adding documentation and examples for that in the site.

A View has to be created by entering the CREATE VIEW code
manually. We may add a more visual interface for
creating views, but that would be in the future.

We're adding those.

You can delete (or add) a schema with the +/- buttons in the
Overview panel.

We're working hard on fixing the bugs and improving it
so please keep trying and reporting any problems you have!
In special, if there is something that you know is a bug,
please use to report it.
