I just realized all checkboxes are relative to the "find" block. Wouldn't it
make sense to move them at the bottom of it?

And while we are at it, this is not related to the space saving, but I think
the "Add..." buttons should be moved to the left, so that they are closer
to the combobox/checkbox to which they are related.
