Spreadsheet (Tab-Delimited Text) Import
Tab-delimited tables are imported intelligently when dragged or pasted into Tinderbox. For example, selecting a table in a spreadsheet and pasting it into Tinderbox will create a useful set of notes:
Empty values in numeric fields are imported as "0". The first column always maps to $Name, so you may want to duplicate column 1 at source or add a 'name' column there so that the otherwise first column of the original data gets handled as a user attribute.
The feature works beyond formal spreadsheets - any tab-delimited text sample should import. This allows other material such as vcf address card data to be dragged into Tinderbox.
In v4.6.2, import was improved to offer better auto-detection of dates, non-ASCII characters and to handle clipboard data from Numbers '09.
