In a toold like select it would be nice to place curser in Field - and type the first letter of the fields you want to browse through.: By pressing F here I would just across fields that starts with F.
Sometimes you want to preserve the field order from the sorce, and if you have many fields it takes a while.
Or beeing able to filter - just like in excel:
Same goes for formula box:
Beeing able to click D as an example and click though coloumns starting with D.
