Re: parametrize the level of details on scheme

In MySQL Workbench you can break down a big model into an unlimited number of diagrams. From my personal experience I cannot recommend to have diagrams bigger than 50-80 tables - everything else becomes to hard to understand / work with.

So, you should try to break down the model into logical groups of tables and create a diagram for each of them. The same table (and all other schema objects) can be placed on each diagram, so you are not limited in your designs.

So if you have 600 tables in your model, I would expect at least 10-12 diagrams in your MySQL Workbench model file.

Hope this helps.
