Importing a Web page

I tried to import a Web page. The Import dialog has an edit field "Address or filename" with "Preview" button to the right. If I simply type a page URL, Import button is still disabled. I have to first click on "Preview", and only then "Import" is enabled. IMO this should not be necessary: I should be able to import a Web page without previewing it.

I agree, we'll add it to the list for the next version.

(The current behavior has one big advantage for us lazy programmers ... the "import" happens much faster and is far less prone to network problems because every picture is already in the cache.)
