Currently using 2018b.
I can't find a way to deselect all variables (in order to select only 1 or 2) from a file when using import.
Doesn't seem possible, is there a way to do this?

I understand that you want to select only few variables, while deselecting all other variables in the Import Wizard. But as of now, deselecting all the variables in a single step is not possible.
As a workaround you may consider using load to import specific variables from .mat file
For example, to load the variable named X from durer.mat file, these statements are equivalent
load durer.mat X % command form
load('durer.mat', 'X') % function form
To know more about load, please refer
Hope this helps!

Thanks, appreciate the feedback, new, useful trick for grabbing only one variable from a big file!
