      Description

      Spoon's "Import from an XML file" feature is not named accurately.

      When you use this feature, it only opens the file. It does not save it as well. Therefore, it should be called "Open from an XML file".

      Reason: In every other software program, "importing" means to save it into something. In Spoon, this feature doesn't save, it only opens. Even in other areas of Spoon (Tools -> Repository -> Import), "import" actually saves into the repostitory.

      This confuses customers (I know because I'm an instructor).

      Please consider renaming this menu item to "Open from an XML file".

      Thank you.
