Currently the only way to manage relationships between tables in the Base GUI is from the Relationships Window. When working with a database schema that has more then a few tables and relationships this display becomes quite cluttered. The only way to remove a table from the display is to delete it - but in so doing all relationships in which this table participate are dropped. The RFE is for the ability to hide a table in the display, without the requirement of removing the relations it is part of. This enhancement would have two benefits: One - help reduce clutter during the creation and management of the relationships, thereby reducing chances for user error in implementing the data relationships in the database. Two - aid in using this display as a way of documenting the database schema.

May be hiding of tables could be done with the introduction of different layers. Each layer can be turn on/off.
