Hi Luis,

Nice progress. :)  I notice that if you create a new table and then
create a foreign key on it from another table, the datatype on the new
table is undefined.  Couldn't that default to the same datatype as the
primary key? (but obviously if the PK is serial/bigserial then it uses

I still think one thing which definitely needs changing are the
controls.  Most of them cover a very small pixel area and as such make
it tricky to click on and prone to missing them (or at least it would
be for me).  Although I appreciate you're still in the middle of
working on everything and are just working on functionality rather
than presentation.

Also, could the play button (which currently shows the SQL) just say
"SQL" on it?  And for it to appear in a separate panel in the same
window?  Sort of like results currently do for the SQL Query Editor in
PgAdmin.  In fact, maybe if the pane is open and you make changes to
the diagram, it could update the pane contents in real time?
