Once pgModeler is started it is quite simple to begin the creation of a database model. Just press
Ctrl + N (Linux or Windows) or
Command + N (macOS) or just click the icon at the top-left corner of the image to create a blank model. You can start create the database objects by right-click the canvas area (see image below) and selecting
New or using the same item in the model editing toolbar (see Main window section in previous chapter).
There is still another control called new object overlay which expands the pop-up menu in the image below into an overlay that permits the creation of objects just by hitting the keyboard keys without the need use mouse clicks. This control is explained in details at Chapter 7: Modeling tips and tricks.
