Please provide an example. What kind of queries are you not able to write?

The wizard does not seem to have a keyword for case insensitive resulting in all queries created with the wizard is case sensitive.
"name~postnord in sweden" typed into the wizard. The description below the wizard does not say how to mark the query insensitive.
Manually editing the query adding ,i works fine but often the sensitiveness leads to problems with queries (try adding ,i to the query above and see the difference).

From osmwiki:Overpass_turbo/Wizard#Tag_Searches the correct syntax is:
name ~ /postnord/i in sweden
