      Description

      Some users take delivery of an entire survey worth of point files as a single ASCII file.  Some users are reporting file sizes of 20 - 30 GB.  Qimera has functionality that breaks these very large files into small sets of QPDs, this is the "Import Survey ASCII" option.

      This suggestion captures a few improvements that can be made:

      1. Move the option to "Import Survey ASCII" to be alongside in the menu where a user would import regular ASCII points to improve discoverability.
      2. Rename the option to make it clearer what it does, something like "Import multi-line ASCII file"
      3. Add a warning to users bringing large ASCII files via the traditional route that they should not do this and then direct them to use the other method instead.
