V7.0 Beta 4 (Build 52) ASCII mapping column template

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

I am a new user trying to set up DT with a view to full version (moving from TS4).
I have a folder with many ASCII files in symbol,date,open,high,low,close,volume,openint format and am trying to use ASCII mapping. All files are found and fields are correctly identified but for volume and openint columns being transposed (note Category column is stocks even though openint is present as this field is used for a 'flag' value).
Help file says:
     http://mce_host/pm/mk:@MSITStoreC:\MultiCharts%20DT\MultiCharts%20Discretionary%20Trader.chm::Wrong sequence of columns
To change the sequence:
1. Click the column heading.
1. From the drop-down field select the correct filed.
1. Repeat for all improperly defined columns.
After those parameters have been properly set, the program analyses the file again and sets the proper Resolution. The program will automatically apply the edited template for all files with the same structure, so the user does not have to edit every file manually.
I correct the first file but the change is not applied to all the other files.
I am expecting all the found files to inherit my specified columns.

Steps to reproduce this issue

As above.

It would be useful if managing and modifying ASCII mapping with the new release, you could add a feature as** UTC time** zone in QuoteManager data Import and not only GMT, or Local or Exchange.
Today many datafeeds sets their data to download to UTC time which never change during the year.
It would be very useful if you could add this simple feature.
Thanks in advance
