Cool Import/Export Trickery

I'm having a blast moving data in and out of UR. The ability to map attributes into a CSV format and capture CSV-formatted data as items and attributes is giving me all kinds of flexibility I didn't count on when I first started using UR.

One more trick: how about doing the same kind of trickery through the clipboard. So, if I take a bunch of rows and columns from an excel sheet or a word table, I can go to UR, click in the parent item that I want my new data to land under and just paste special "Items & Attributes". UR would then enter the Import dialog with clipboard data instead of file data. Copying could work the same way.

This kind of functionality would save a lot of futzing with intermediate CSV files that I need to remember to throw away.

Is this different from say selecting items from the Child Items or search results and using Edit/Copy Grid values and then pasting the grid into Excel?

I agree that importing into UR from the clipboard would be slick.
