I think it would be really useful if it was possible to set the default values for the primary key field, geometry column and srid that are used in the table creation dialogue in DB-Manager. It's very easy for non-expert users to accidentally get these elements wrong. These values could be set in preferences somewhere, or perhaps we could have a tick box in the table creation dialogue that says "save these attribute names and srid as the default for new tables". Sorry if this is something that has already been requested/discussed, I did go through the existing feature requests and documentation, and couldn't find anything.
