Description

GUI allows for importing data matrix from text files with .txt extension. However, some MLZ instruments save this matrix in the text files with other extensions. For example, KWS3 saves matrix in the text files with extension .det.

For an average GUI user it is quite some work to rename several tens of files to be able to load them in GUI.

I think, this constraint should be relaxed. We should not determine the file type by extension.
