Override "show combined text for multiple selection"
This feature is absolutely ingenious and I use it daily. However, Sometimes I want to select multiple items to move/copy/delete or whatever but NOT to combine their contents. Currently, every time I have to perform such operation, I have to visit the options dialogue. If I toggle this option off, then I have to toggle on again when I combine contents.

Can this option be overridden at usage time without having to go to options?

No, but having that option enabled doesn't prevent you from move/copy/deleting a multiple selection.

no it certainly does not. My bad. I should've elaborated.
Like yesterday, I was moving items around, and having to wait for UR to combine 50 items just to move them was not pleasant.

This inefficiency is apparent when you reorg you database. May be it is a good idea to move this option out of the global dialogue and simply provide it in the right click context menu something like 'merge selected'. If you have the function already available, why not?

Cancel the progress dialog (Esc or click Cancel) that is displayed while retrieving the item text.
