     Currently, NORMA doesn't generate UML class diagrams from an ORM model. This is something we'd like to support in the future. For a basic procedure on how to manually map ORM to UML, see section 9.8 of Information Modeling and Relational Databases, 2nd edition.

      To copy an ORM diagram to the clipboard, right-click an empty space in the diagrammer window, and choose Copy Image from the context menu. To paste it from the clipboard to a Word document, open the document and choose Paste > Paste Special to open the Paste Special dialog, then choose Picture (Enhanced Metafile) and press OK. If you wish to also copy some sample populations you could include those in the diagram as model notes, and they will come over with the image. Alternatively, you can copy the sample population text (e.g. from the ORM Verbalization Browser) to the clipboard and then paste it to your document.

    Cheers

    Sir, 

    'if you wish to also copy some sample populations you could include those in the diagram as model notes, and they will come over with the image." 

    I tried the notes in the Properties , NOTE to include the sample population on the image that is to be copied on the clip board. The "Note" does not come on the diagram with the image on the word clip board. Am I missing something?

    Best regards,

    Hi Berhanu,

    Simply drag a Model Note shape from the Toolbox to the diagram window, and then add or copy the text into the shape. 

    Cheers
