Hi pgAdmin Development Team,

(following relates to pgAdminII version 1.1 build 59)

I imagine there's a little lack in your 
function "Save DB schema", so I will 
explain by example:

If you want to create a function, you can
do this with PSQL and a SQL script file -
if so, then the following syntax will bring
you the on the right way:

CREATE FUNCTION idics_track_revision_ins () RETURNS opaque AS '
    IF NEW.revcdate ISNULL THEN
      NEW.revcdate := ''now'';
    END IF;
' LANGUAGE 'plpgsql';

This creates the function well.

Note the double '' to use timestamp function "now" and
the syntax of the CREATE FUNCTION line.

pgAdminII export (and show) this as:

CREATE FUNCTION "idics_track_revision_ins"() RETURNS "opaque" AS '
    IF NEW.revcdate ISNULL THEN
      NEW.revcdate := 'now';
    END IF;
' LANGUAGE 'plpgsql';

Further use by PSQL was impossible.

pgAdminII was well designed to create and manage the database
but in case on install a ready designed database on a new host
the good old psql was the quickest way.

2. I know, christmas is not too far away - so here's a wish you
could simple fulfill:

PLEASE make all areas of pgAdminII "resizesable" (especially I 
mean the 'Definition' area, that is a very great idea to show
for control purposes, but in now it can only enlarged to the 
whole client area).
