How can I view the Interface Options after I saved the parameters

It appears that once I check the "Save parameter on capture start" and click Start for my extcap interface, it will use those default settings from then on and not display the dialog. In order to see it again, I have to delete my preference files under the Help > About > Folders > Personal Configuration directory.

Is there another button in Wireshark to see the Interface Options dialog on-demand before starting my extcap capture?

Any help is appreciated. Thx.

There is a bug open for this.

You can always go back to the welcome page, scroll down the list of interfaces to your extcap interface and click the wheel icon before it. That should pop up the settings dialog.

Thanks @Jaap. I completely overlooked the icon.
