Title

many to many relation and missing related field in portal-set-up

Post

This is what happened:

 

I wanted to build a relational database with many-to-many relations and portals in the lay-out. I did build a few test databases and it all worked very well.

 

Then I wanted to apply the exact same techique on the real database.... and it did not work.

 

  1. the relation graph does not show any crow's feet.
  2. in the portal the related fields (with the ::) do not appear on top after inserting the portal. 
It is complete mind-boggeling since I do exactly the same as before. I even tried to build a new database afterward and that one worked fine. I am a bit concerned that in the future sudden bugs appear.
 
Question:
  1. How does the relation graph know where to put the crow's feet?
  2. Why do the related fields not appear when I configure my portal?
