Do you mean rows?  If you insert a column then you'll break the CSV
format and it won't import.

I added add/delete rows with automatic renumbering to CHIRP a while ago. 
  I still need to add an option to insert more than one at a time...

Hmm, okay.  It's definitely something I can add, although I'm not sure
I'd use it personally :)

That's certainly doable too.

Thanks!
