I suggest changing the default on the Hide/Show section of the Interaction dialog
This is a minor change, but it would help me to avoid a number of stupid human mistakes. Within the Hide/Show section of the Interactions dialog, the default setting is "Hide." I find that I use "Show" far more often and I am constantly forgetting to change that setting. My mind naturally goes from choosing the panel to selecting the component I want to Hide/Show.
I think the default should be "Show".
