Whan I select Custom I have to scroll two screens down to reach the
"Go" button, compared with half in current version. At least for me,
it makes everything look more complicated. On 1280x800 screen I have a
lot of free space on the right side of the screen. I think large
margins contribute to that even more.

I would really appreciate if you could do it :)
Or at least always show Databases and Output. Tasks I do most often are:
- export a set of tables (not entire database) to a compressed file
- export one table as text
