Model utilization indicator

In the top right corner of a diagram area, there is a model utilization indicator, which indicates the usage of your table limit. If you start getting close to the limit, it will become orange and if the limit gets reached, it will turn red.

Model quick navigation

To make navigating through the model easier, you can use model quick navigation in the bottom right corner. There you can check where you are now in your model and quickly move from one place to another. If you don’t need it at the moment, you can hide it by clicking the arrow.
