Can cover lookup be disabled?

Most of the time I am waiting for cover lookup to finish, and it sometimes lasts longer than transcoding. Can that step be skipped?

Sure, just go to the advanced settings and select none at the album art search option:

I've having problems with this since, I think, version 2.1.9 (which also introduced zero-padded track numbers, which I would like to be able to disable, but it was a minor complaint and I just lived with it).

As you can see, I've selected the seemingly most restrictive settings regarding the download of cover art that CUETools offers:
X

And yet, with many albums I still get this when encoding. CUETools has already downloaded an image and is showing it to me:
X

But it gets worse sometimes.

So I start an encoding an album with the tag editor enabled, and, first, I get this:
X

After that I have to wait for the program to download multiple images from coverartarchive.org...
X

...which are then shown for me to choose one:
X

And then it's shown while encoding too:
X

Apart from the annoyance of having to wait for the downloads and to click through all this process that I don't even need, I get particularly aggravated because I'm currently on a limited data plan, and the last thing I want is to waste my quota on cover art I don't want to begin with.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Yeah the album art search setting is ignored for some reason, makes me wonder how many of the other options also don't work.

Yeah, I wanted to post that, as it doesn't really help. It searches cover art anyways.
