Ah, checkbox, yes. Seems kind of obvious, now that you mention it...
One advantage would be that it is at least somewhat similar to current
plot previews.

I had thought about tabs, too, a bit. But how do you hide all previews?
(There's also the - minor - issue that this would only allow one
preview at a time.)

Alternatively, we could also insert some kind of title (and even a
close/collapse button) above each preview, without needing tabs.

That's essentially the way the "code preview" is integrated into
wizards, ATM. I was a bit un-satisfied that this would mean you don't
really get to see the preview *while* making settings in the UI. But
yes, it does make sense after all.
