Unchecking the "generate an atlas" box in Atlas generation tab erases all the options set in the "Configuration" frame.
In old versions, these were just inactive till you reactivate the atlas function.

Digging further, it appears that i didn't click on "Apply configuration" once I've set up the atlas. So not a bug (except from me)...
But I remark that the "Apply configuration" button is now the key of anything in atlas parameters. Forget to click on it and none of your changes will be taken into consideration. You neither can have access (without error message) to output options in a newly created print composer if you haven't applied configuration.
I'm afraid people won't remind to click on this button each time they made a change, so I'd like to know if it really costs more to automatically apply the modifications and update the features's list (and preview) as the user sets parameters. As it was in previous release.
