You could try with a floating version of "Query / Proof Context / state" 
and then use the "Apply" button or its "ENTER" shortcut.  I've recently 
played with the focus a bit, so you can move the cursor in the inactive 
text area and press ENTER to update the output.  (E.g. in 362c8c64ec83.)

At the moment this is somewhat overlapping accidental functionality of 
Output vs. Info vs. Query.  Hopefully it will at some point become more 
clear what is really needed.  The "Preview" slot is still unused, and will 
remain so as a wildcard for some time.
