I have problem with uploading a txt file into VStar. 
I attached this file to this post. What could be wrong with it?

Hi Marcin

You're absolutely right in thinking that there should be NO problem at all with loading this file into VStar.

The implementation of CSV/TSV handling in VStar changed with this current release and it appears that this simple case fell through a hole in regression testing. A pretty big hole actually!

I've been preparing a new release that I hope to get out this week.

Can I ask you to sanity check a pre-release version in a day or two?

Apologies for this error.


Shure do. Waiting patiently.
