Agreed I hate the extra work it makes you do, it used
to be so simple.....

To get around this...

Create a diagram, when you add a new table you have
access to Column Name, DataType, Length, Nulls;
you can also set the view to custom and add in all the
identity fields (and some others) too.

When you're creating multiple tables you can also
easily add your referential integrity.

Also don't forget to save this as a sql script if you
want to apply the same set up to different sql
servers, then you can easily run the generated script
on your next server.

Alternatively use T-SQL, as long as your defining your
table and not altering it, it's pretty simple.
