Summary0003542: Clean up import/export UI
DescriptionThe File open/import/export menus allow GCode as an option.

1. opens the selector dialog for the pre-processor
2. Creates a naked path object in the tree

1. opens the dialog to select the post-processor
2. attempts to post whatever object is selected

This is really the wrong way to handle post-processing and is confusing to users
Additional InformationRecommend the following changes.
1. Remove gcode from the File import/export file types.
2. Add import... and export (post process)... menu items to the Path menu
3. export (post-process)... should trigger the current post process behavior
4. import should create a custom object in a Job.

existing export template... item should be left as is.

TagsNo tags attached.
