This is one of those simple tips you could overlook for years, as have I.

right click and choose View Page Breaks

In Enterprise Manager, when you try to print database diagrams, the insane things always end up straddling multiple pages. It's a nightmare trying to get a nice simple print out.

right click and choose View Page Breaks

Right-Click and select the option 'View Page Breaks'. Now you can rearrange your tables to avoid page breaks. And a neat print out is as easy as pie.

I'm kicking myself, wishing I'd noticed this sooner.
