Read from file Action

After its completion the Read from file Action retains some its operational data - the file contents in the first place, but also the full path and name of the file read as well as the amount of data (in bytes) and completion status of the file reading procedure.

These dynamic data can be retrieved by the means of Variable Wizard and used for automatic ad-hoc configuration of the next Actions, thus streamlining automatic file reading into the wider context of the Task.
