No

* If one column with values from a spreadsheat application like OpenOffice.org or Excel is pasted to a node, FreeMind should open separate subnodes for each value in the column.

* If multiple colums with values in each cell is pasted, FreeMind should open subnodes for the first column and subsubnodes for the second column, and so forth.

* If multiple colums with values in some cells is pasted, FreeMind should open subnodes for the first column and subsubnodes for the second column, and so forth. If a cell in the first column does not contain a value whilst the corresponding cell on the same row in the second column does contain a value, the value in the second row is pasted as a subnode to the last node containing a value in the first column. And so forth.

    I am confused by the documentation which implies that this should work as the original reported requests:

    http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Import_and_export_to_other_applications

    "You can copy a selection of cells in Excel and drop it in FreeMind. Doing this with several columns, creates corresponding child nodes."

    This does not work for me with 0.9.0 RC7 -- the pasted cells are pasted as a single text node.

    i would like to support this feature!

    maybe the easiest way could be:
    adding a new function in the context menu "convert to node" which converts each line in a long node to an own node (and vise verca ?).

    thanks
