Allow open csv without confirmation

Post by sibojang9 » Thu Apr 01, 2021 2:04 am

PlanMaker always asks for confirmation of the character set, data format, etc before import and open a csv file. Can this step be bypassed to make Planmaker more efficient ? Microsoft excel never asks for that with csv file.

I prefer it the way it is, because this gives me the safety that the CSV file is read correctly by PlanMaker. CSV files are not unambiguous in their formatting, so PlanMaker needs some hints how to interpret them. What if you turn off this inquiry and then get a CSV with a different separator, code page or something else? The result would be chaotic. After all, it's only one "OK" click more.

I too came looking for this. If it's read only, don't let me make any edits. Don't make me click a button every time. Yes, it's just one button but when you have to click it 10 or 20 times a day it becomes a reason to look for another piece of software.
