I'm working with QGIS field calculator and I sometimes need to adjust the formula for a field a little bit. My problem is, that whenever I adjust the formula, I need to type the formula as a whole again. When using the field calculator in ArcGIS the formula is not lost after executing it, is there a way that's possible in QGIS? It costs me so much unnecessary time and effort...
