Most (if not all) programs seem to use bullets to indicate that one of several options can be selected. If multiple options can be selected at the same time, checkboxes are used.
To indicate that several or all options can be selected at the same time for "Strings considered for uncommenting text", checkboxes should be used in the editor preferences.

CC'ing Torsten since I believe he knows how to change that.
