When importing, an option not to have Paperpile fill the paper details automatically

Sometimes I upload pdfs that are formatted irregularly (pages scanned from books, unpublished documents, etc.) and I know Paperpile’s guesses at the information fields will come out garbled. For such cases, it would be great to be able to tick some box when importing the file(s) that disables Paperpile’s auto-fill function.

If you already know that a paper won’t be easily recongnize, I’d suggest to create first the reference item with “Add papers > Manually” and then attach the PDF via “Add PDF > Choose a file”.
