XLS Reader More options do not work


Hello everyone,
I experience a bug with XLS Reader, the more options part is in Grey and cannot be edited, I wanted to uncheck the preview because the node gets completely stuck with just showing the preview every time, and it looks like the attached screenshot…

My KNIME version is 4.0.0 and all the extensions are updated!!

Thank you for your help.
