Divide a stereo track into 2 mono tracks

How, in Cubase 8, do I, when I have a project track that is stereo? Only 2 instances of split stereo in the documentation manual, about importing a track, and adjusting the setting. But if I choose the file and try to import, I get no settings dialog, it just imports. a mono track.

these are the settings from 13, but in 8 they are the same

OK thanks. I did have that set thus already I see, but didn’t import correctly.

Maybe because you already have an imported file in the pool. Remove it from the pool and try importing again
