Hi Paolo!

* What do you mean by "lot of empty space in the middle" here is only a 
very small stripe
* "mostly emtpy" -> it is filled on demand depending on how many options 
are provided by the format. - try to save as SpatiaLite

The only (currently) unfortunate thing is that the More Options button 
is not shrinking the window again if you press it again .. So once the 
extended options are opened you should leave them switched on.
If anyone has a good idea howto solve it .. suggestions welcome.

The original intention was to make the dialog as small as possible and 
not annoy novice users with extended options they might never need. Per 
default there should be no need to use the "More Options" button. Every 
format should have reasonable defaults now (if not tell me and I am 
going to change it).

I am not 100% happy with that layout either but it was the best we 
(Matthias and me) could make at that moment.

kind regards
