MySQL schema print utility? - MySQL

I need an affordable way to print out MySQL database schema. I took a quick look around and came across EMS SQL Manager for MySQL. The feature list includes "printing database diagram", which sounds right. Has anyone use this program? The Linux non-commercial version is *only* $48. I actually don't want to spend that much just to print out schemas. phpMyAdmin manages just about everything very well, but doesn't have a print feature. All comments/suggestions welcome....

    Default MySQL schema print utility?

    Have you checked out DBDesigner 4? It's free.

    I don't recall if it has a print feature, but it can generate an ER
    diagram by reverse-engineering an existing MySQL database. You might be
    able to at least make a screen capture of that diagram, even if it
    doesn't have a print function built in.

    I use DBDesigner 4 for that purpose. After reverse engineering or
    creating the structure, I select all objects and select "copy as image".
    Then I print it with a graphics program.


    Best regards

    Don't miss its successor: MySQL Workbench, which is currently in alpha
    state. We plan to get out a new release (maybe still alpha) yet this year.
    This will contain PNG output of your schemas (I added that this week) and,
    if all goes well, also PDF output.
