On a Mac machine when copying a range of data from excel cells into a Demantra worksheet the information is not successfully pasted as expected. We face two issues:
 - Upon choosing the same range of cells to past, Demantra throws a Paste Action Warning that the copy and paste area are not the same size and shape
 - When pasted directly on a cell, instead of pasting on the corresponding grid of rows and columns, the data is only loaded sequentially on the rows.

ERROR
