Great idea Bob..
I am adding this on "to do" list, so we will have it available.
As you know, DXLog.net supports .DTB for pre-fill, but also two other
possible types (both plain txt files, one
with simple format, and another one with regex type determination).
XDT will be additional bonus, but I would like also to make it easier for
user to choose which file to use, instead of copying files somewhere...hi
