I needed a simple tool to update my dbml file and was getting increasingly frustrated having to keep track of updates and removing them and re adding in the visual studio designer.
All you need to do is

Review items for update
Deselect updates that are not required.
Selection Action -> Update
Selection Action -> Exit
