suggestions for small but much needed ui imporvements in pgAdmin4

Gordon Freeman
Greetings,
 
As a user of pgAdmin4 I have some simple UI suggestions that would vastly improve the user experience for a great amount of users.
 
1. Make it possible to close the tabs Dashboard, Properties, SQL, Statistics, Dependencies and Dependants. They take a lot of screen space which would be better used by tabs that the user opens like query editors.
2. Currently in order to present a schema's tables the user needs to perform 5 clicks. Make this and other common tasks more easily accessible.
3. Make it easy to update record columns data values that are presented in table form after executing select queries.
4. Renaming schemas should be possible from a right click menu.
 
Kind regards,
 
Olegk Sotnikov

I support this suggestion 100%. The web based version of pg_admin is very limited.  You should be able to see the column data type witnesses drop down list of the column. 

I use \dS+ on command line to see table structure and properties. Pg_admin is a sad tool

Or pgadmin 4 rather. While pgadmin3 crashes when a server it's connecting to is restarted, I myself prefer it. Unfortunately, pgadmin3 is pestering with popups upon initial connection to postgres v10 and higher.

FWIW, this list is not for discussing pgAdmin; it's for general
administration issues for the core Postgres server.  There is
a pgAdmin support list at pgadmin-support, or if you want to
help fix it join pgadmin-hackers.

List of Postgres community mailing lists is here:

https://www.postgresql.org/list/
