Summary0002889: Relocate "LOTW" (import confirmations) menu item
DescriptionThe LOTW item in the Logbook, File, Import menu item is misplaced - as it is functionally and contextually unlike the other items in this menu. It should be moved to the Logbook, File, LOTW menu and renamed to something like "Import LOTW confirmations manually from ADIF."

Image attached.
Steps To ReproduceWithin Logbook, navigate to the Logbook, File, Import menu and notice "LOTW" there. This option runs the function that matches imported confirmations to existing QSOs in the log.

Within Logbook, navigate to the Logbook, File, LOTW menu. Note that the other items in this menu are related to the upload or download (automatic import) of electronic LOTW confirmations.
TagsNo tags attached.

Most menu commands are one or two words. ""Import LOTW confirmations manually from ADIF" is much longer than that, and would be very awkward to show in a menu -- the menu would need to be very wide to accommodate the length of that string.

Is a more succinct command possible?

Given that the menu already says "LOTW"... and that the user will be prompted to select an ADIF...

"Manual Import" is probably the best-worded choice.

I've made this change. Note that there's a similar menu structure under the "More..." button on the main toolbar of the Logbook's database view, so I made a similar change there.

I'm fine with this.
