ArcMap automatically saves your most recent selection criteria and shows it again when you re-open the Select by Attribute window during the same session. I would like at least to see this functionality restored. Actually, ArcMap saves the most recent query for every layer that you have made a query in using the "Select by Attribute" feature from each table window, plus the most recent query from the general "Select by Attribute" window.
If a query history were implemented, I would be satisfied if it applied to the current session only, rather than saving every query you have made or every query in each project.
I am thinking of remembering just the query, rather than remembering the selection that resulted. Remembering the selection might be nice also, because then you could get back to that selection faster, and it would still give you the same records, even if some of them had been edited to no longer satisfy the query. But it would be confusing to explain this to the user.
