What are the lost options that you referring to?

I just try similar scenario from upstream code,
Created a new Linux template - set the cloud-init with hostname, Dns-Server,
Dns-Search domain, and a static IP with subnet and gateway.
Created a VM from this template and edited all the above fields, The VM new
fields was saved.
I also try the Run Once dialog and saw all the values that I set.

You may encounter an error in the saving process that prevent you from saving
the new values, you can try by looking at the engines log:
You can also try to update other values in the same update such as the VM
name and look if the VM was updated.
