How can I load a data table from a spatial file into a Map in Spatial Manager Desktop™?

You can load a data table from a spatial file using the right-click menu over the file item in the "Data sources" panel to load its content (all the file or a table from the file) into a new or existing Map. You can also double-click over the file (or a table from the file) to load it into a new or existing Map (this behaviour may be configured in the application settings)
