Bug Description


A minor but annoying issue with the 'Import Spreadsheet' function in the Data Laboratory: the file open dialogue for this function is pre-set to only show .csv files, and this cannot be changed - which is not useful since the import function itself also copes with spreadsheet files which use tabs or other characters as record separators. Tab-separated files are usually saved as .txt or .tsv files, though, not as .csv; the only way to import non-.csv files at present is to manually enter the filename into the file open dialogue.

Can this be changed, please ? At least add another option to the file open dialogue 'Files of type...' pull-down to show all files (*.*), in addition to just *.csv...

(This is on Windows, by the way - not sure if Macs have a similar file open dialogue...)

That's right. Since it is now called import spreadsheet it should accept any format if the user does not use csv.
It now allows to use * filter.
