Not me. I've long believed that the InfoDialog doesn't really
serve a purpose at this point other than it may appear to be
simplier for a first time user to chose from just the basic
record types. However, these days, setting priority, profile
and start and end offsets are so integral that it is probably
a disservice to new users to not expose these options. I believe
that most users don't discover (or read in keys.txt) that they
can get to thses other options by pressing INFO a second time.
I think it would be better for everyone to see just the complete
'advanced options' page without the InfoDialog.

My $.02,
