I just encountered the case that I wanted to append to a monthly dataset
from 1961m1 - 2021m10 new data from a file with the range 1960m1 -
2021m12. This was done using the GUI (menus), and failed.
The command reference for "append" says:
"One case that is not supported is where the new data start earlier and
also end later than the original data. To add new series in such a case
you can use the --fixed-sample option; this has the effect of
suppressing the adding of observations, and so restricting the operation
to the addition of new series."
So I think what I'm asking for is a kind of tick box where I can
activate the --fixed-sample option also in the GUI.
