Will check in-program, I think.

Make Style and Color smaller, that's what I meant, yes. I agree with
you on that the preview should be completely visible, but that would
be possible even with 1/3, 2/3 columns. The line style chooser could
then look similar to how it looks in the toolbar (the combo box shows
the preview only, the associated popup shows preview and description).

OK. Please note that the changes I proposed here are really not
all-important. The dialogue is fine as is, too.
