Try the attached text file, using space for delimiter. All 8 points are displayed in the "Example text" box when setting up the import, but only 7 are actually imported - the first one is skipped.

The first line is expected to carry column titles not data. I quite sure I saw that documented somewhere, when I worked on the german translation. But I can't seem to find it now. This probably needs to be at a more prominent place.

First row must be a header row. This is documented on the user guide.

Since we are in string freeze, no changes will be made to the dialog itself until after the 0.9.1 release.
