This feature has been added in DbSchema 7.0 Build 4210.
You can now right click on a FK and select to hide it.

This is really great news! I am already using it and this is exactly what i was looking for ! Now, my layouts will become much better.

Thank you so much for getting this implemented. Many thanks to Roberto that helped a lot on this matter. You really made a user happy! :D

Just do a right click on the header of any of the referencing or referenced tables and click on "Show All Hidden Foreign Keys" option ;)

hi,

It will be very useful if you can add an option to allow individual FK "hiding", because of normalization.

As can be seen in picture, normalization sometimes create a mess when drawing because a lot of FK lines which are less relevant for design but MUST be included in table definition and coding. As an example, in my db, status table receives 14 lines while users table receives 8 and so on... and this is just for one module, there are few others pending design.

So I suggest you to add a show/hide possibility in FK tab...
In practice this already happens when table shape position prevents some lines to be drawn.

br,
Hi ! I am another customer interested on this feature. Hiding "non-relevant" FKs would be a precious feature for this software. Even with smaller layouts, we still can get messy diagrams. A feature like that would really solve that problem. :D :D :D
