Is there any way to get the codes to display on the browser
instead of the names? Display preferences displays either
on the diagram, but I'd like to see the codes for columns
and the constraint name for a reference displayed in the
browser.

thanks

As you've discovered, you can choose to display codes
instead of names, and this affects the browser as well as
the diagram. I don't think there's any way to show the
constraint name in the browser, but you could show it in a
list of references or list report.

It's worth submitting an enhancement request to influence
what is shown in the browser - I'd like to be able to show
different information for relationships.
