Description Anthony Youngman 2019-02-02 20:20:09 UTC
Not sure if this is the same problem as 67284, but it seems related. It is, however, VERY confusing.

Import a flat .txt file.
Select save as csv

You get a flat file!

Import a flat .txt file.
Save as ods
Save as csv

You get the "save as csv" delimiter selection screen and you actually get a csv. So if I import a text file, I have to do an intermediate "save as ods" in order to get "save as csv" to work as expected. NOT user-friendly.
