When using the Select by Attributes command, I am annoyed by always having to click New expression. In fact, I see no reason why you couldn't just eliminate it altogether and default to the Create a new expression option where you use pull-down menus to build your query. If you want to use SQL, there is a slider. If you want to load an expression, there is a load option. So, what is the point of this button? To me, there is no value added and just time wasted.
