I won't start any more projects through DBDesigner since it cannot be
imported/read by MySQL Workbench, besides that DBDesigner does not
work with MySQL 5+ (although it might not work with latest 4.x
versions too), unless you use some 'wrapper' (e.g. odbc). To make use
of work done under DBDesigner I had to export the SQL code and run it
manually into MySQL, then reverse engineer in MySQL Workbench to
continue work there.
I prefer DBDesigner though :(
