In the action to import a csv file (in calc), the dialog have format option for
columns to import.

In this site, the "hide" option is IMHO, not apropiate for the function that have.

The apropiate name will be "Not import".

Adding me to cc.

As Roman said, "Hide" doesn't represent very well what this option actually
does, because the column isn't hidden on the imported file, but not imported at all.

Could it be changed to something like "Don't import", or simply "Ignore" or "Omit"?

Best regards,

Hide doesn't belong to Column type selection list and should be a check box named "Don't import selected columns".
