i have an existing database and have recently downloaded mysql workbench. I was wondering if anyone could walk me through how to navigate the workbench and how to get a visualization of the RDB. I'd like to know how all the tables are related to each other.

Go to Database Menu and select Reverse engineer, or simply press Ctrl+R (Windows) or +R (OS X).
