Importing an STL part inside the current document

 I have a working document, to which I would like to import an STL part.

The onshape documentation on the topic seems to be outdated :https://cad.onshape.com/help/Content/uploadfiles.htm#Importin3. When I click on the + import button, the import modal does not show a "Import to this document" options

How does one go about this?

Thanks a lot

    Select '+' from lower left of screen. Import is the last item in the list. If it's not showing up, try refreshing the browser and if it still isn't there then contact support since it should be there.

    Thanks Glen, I do see the import button, but importing will create a new Part tab and I can not find a way to bring that part inside my current model. Is there a way to do that ?
