Description

The side column in form view allows to select either an attribute column or an expression.

It remembers previous column names, but not previous expressions used in this context.

In our opinion, it is much more important to remember expressions (since they may be more complex) than attribute columns, which can be easily reselected from the list "Column Preview". Remembering previous columns isn't really important, but previous expressions would be important.

See attached screenshot as an illustration where this applies.
