Set default diagram to display when opening EDMX


I don't see a way to do this in VS2012 and don't see any discussion points here so adding it in hopes that its not redundant.

A tiny feature....would be nice to specify which diagram to see by default when opening an EDMX.

Maybe it's only a problem for me while I'm working on a training video. I can't tell if in real world app design it would be useful.

EF Team Triage: As we start to plan the releases that follow EF6 we are doing a large triage effort on our backlog of bugs, features and tasks. Our aim is to have our backlog be a realistic representation of what we (or our contributors) may add to EF in the future.
This reduces the number of issues we need to sift thru as we plan each release. For example, coming into the planning for the set of releases after EF6 we had 600+ items on the backlog. A large number of these items are very low priority and will realistically never be addressed.
As a result of this we are closing a number of items as “Won’t Fix”. These items fall into one of the following buckets:
  • Items that are either low priority or expensive to implement and we don’t believe provide enough benefit to outweigh the cost of implementing (given that time spent implementing them would detract from implementing other features).
  • Items created by a member of the EF Team that we have not seen customers asking for and we don’t believe would provide significant benefit to customers.
  • Bugs that only manifest in corner cases and have workarounds.
    These decisions are not final, if you disagree with this resolution for an item feel free to let us know.

EF Team Triage: Hey Julie, we are only taking minimal changes to the designer in EF6 because we are still converting the code base to open source. It's a good idea though... we'll consider it for the next release.
