Hi,

Sorry your post got truncated (our forum software can't cope with 'smart quotes'), but I get the gist.  Can you attach a sample file that you want to import please?  I'll then look into it.  This doesn't sound hard to fix, although there may already be a workaround - where did the file come from (or what software did you use to create it) please?.

Yeah, it seems the forum software can't handle non-ascii either..  :) The message was truncated at the first example accented character.

I have attached a sample with a single track. It was typed manually in a text editor. Just create a new album and import, no need to record or import audio.

I am on MacOS Monterey, running VinylStudio 12.5.2 Pro from App Store.

Thanks,
Jan

Paul Sanders (AlpineSoft):
Yeah, sorry.  We didn't write it  :)

So yes, I see the problem and we will fix it in the next Beta.

In the meantime, you need to save your files as 'UTF-8 with BOM' (or possibly 'UTF-8 with signature'); then it will work.  TextEdit doesn't appear to be able to do this but there's a nice, free editor in the App Store called CotEditor which can.   So I would download that, configure its Preferences appropriately and you should then be golden.

Jan:
Ahh, I see. I will try with BOM.

Thanks a lot for your responsiveness! I love VinylStudio, and use it a lot!

Best regards,
Jan
