After I created a View
I right clicked it on the scemata tab and selected "Copy SQL to Clipboard",
the copied SQL was started with 

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `mydb`.`myview`;

when I would have expected to to be:

DROP VIEW IF EXISTS `mydb`.`myview`;

How to repeat:
Create a view on some table.
right click on it and select copy SQL to clipboard

paste to script editor

Suggested fix:
make it reurn a DROP VIEW statement
instead of a DROP TABLE one.
