Workflowy provides an easy-to-use method to import files, however, it does not actually import the files; it only displays the name of the file, and provides the ability to download the file.... to somewhere else on your computer. This is entirely contrary to the way the rest of Workflowy works.
We need to be able to import a file (eg text, word doc, PDF etc) directly into a specific location in an outline, so that we can read it there, in context. Requiring the user to first download the entire file, and then go somewhere else to read it, and then return to Workflowy to hopefully recall the exact context that it came from is ridiculous and, as I stated in the title, basically useless.
Please fix this design flaw. Doing so will greatly increase the power of Workflowy. Until you do, please do not claim (as you currently do) that users can import files into Workflowy.
