In the SQL editor, the "Create Table" context menu item does not work when you right click on an existing table.  The menu that pops up offers several options, including "Alter Table", "Create Table", and "Drop Table".  Both Alter Table and Drop Table work fine, but Create Table is missing.  It seems as though the MenuItem Click event was never assigned.

This functionality does work if you right click on the "Tables" folder and use this context menu - only the existing table context menu has issues.

How to repeat:
Click on the "Create Table" context menu item for an existing table in the SQL editor.

Suggested fix:
Map the menu item click event to the correct routine for creating a new table.

An entry has been added to the 5.2.18 changelog:

In the Object Explorer of the Sidebar, if an existing table was right-clicked, the context-sensitive menu displayed the option Create Table.... However, selecting this option appeared to have no effect.
