1.2.2 Scanning a directory

This piece of utility try to import several files in a directory according to their extension. The dialog allows yo to specify the file types you want to look for. You also have to specify the directory to check, and tell if you want to perform a recursive search. It is also possible to automatically generate keys. Currently, the only available option is 'first author name + Year'. the 'Default' option keeps the original key.
