It’s official! Adobe is going to restore the old Import dialog in the next dot release and have promised to make future changes via an open dialog with new and existing customers. No timing has been announced yet, as the team still has a lot of work to do, so you may still want to roll back to 6.1.1 in the meantime.
The team have made mistakes with this release, but this unexpected move shows how much they care about their customers. It takes a lot of humility to accept they made the wrong decision and go backwards, and I applaud them for their choice.
(Thanks to the people who pointed out that in the US, it’s customary to treat collective nouns as singular (Adobe is). They’re usually plural (Adobe are) here in the UK!)
