Description

The new Data Source Manager resets some options when you change previous options when adding "Delimited Text".

If I first choose "No Geometry" under geometry definition, and then change "File Format", specifically when changing "Custom Delimiter", the geometry will reset to "Point Coordinates".

If at all possible, changes in settings should not reset settings already made.

not @elpaso confirms with latest build => we have to set it as invelid or we need more info to replicate the issue

The My problem with it is in every release (after further examination).

The behavior is actually the same in the "old" dialogue when adding delimited text, just didn't notice it then.

1. Select "No Geometry"
2. Change separator character (example: add "space")

Step 2 will reset the geometry part from no geometry to point coordinate.

Since this behavior is actually in the current release it shouldn't be a "bug", more a "feature request" to change the behavior to something more "not" annoying.

Please check if this issue is still valid on QGIS 3.4.5 or 3.6.
