I have MySQL Workbench Community Edition 8.0.15 installed on my Mac OS 10.14.3. I'm currently working on making an ERD with Workbench's EER Diagram.

My problem is that whenever I export my diagram, the lines showing the relationships between tables are not visible because the background is white, and the lines are white.

enter image description here

It is visible on the editor because the background is black in workbench, but not when exported.

enter image description here

Is there any way to change the color of these lines? Or at least the background color of the diagram when it is exported so that the lines would at least be visible?

    That's a known bug and an issue report has been created for it already. – Mike Lischke Apr 23 at 8:50
  • @MikeLischke did you have the link of this issue? – bchatard Jun 5 at 10:31
  • @bchatard I think it's a bug in dark mode. The layout is fine if you change the appearance to light instead of using dark in system preferences > general. – Rick Jul 3 at 1:32
  • @Rick yes in "light mode" everything is ok, but it's a poor workaround :( – bchatard Jul 4 at 5:31

I found a solution to help. Close Workbench. Change the theme of your mac in clear mode. Restarts Workbench and saves again in pdf.

  • I'll try it tomorrow and get back to you on what happens. Thanks for the tip! – Rick May 24 at 18:12
  • Yes! Yes! Yes! Finally, something that works – Alexandre Santos Jul 23 at 23:09
