[SOLVED] Problem with 5 side cards

[SOLVED] Problem with 5 side cards

Postby jano » Mon May 20, 2024 9:27 am

Hi Ernie
I am having a problem importing 5 sided decks into flascards deluxe.
I create them in my computer in a speadsheet.
Then I transfer the deck to my tablet, both if I do it as an xlsx file or a Unicode txt file, directly via USB or via Dropbox.
The files in the tablet are OK, exactly as in my computer.
But in the app something strange happens:
The entries under Text 2 dissapear, and they are replace by the entries in Text 3, which are now empty.

So what originally is:
Text 1 Text 2 Text 3 Text 4 Text 5
1 2 3 4 5
Becomes
Text 1 Text 2 Text 3 Text 4 Text 5
1 3 4 5

From within the app I can repear it, copying what the app shows as text 2 to text 3 and then writting again the proper entry under text 2, but I have to do it with all the cards !

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,

I have no idea. Do you have more than one device? Do you get consistent behavior on each device?

Do you want to mail me a text or Excel file and I can try on my end? If you do mail me, let me know if you are using Android or iOS.

Thanks for the reply and sorry to have bothered you, I have found the cause of the problem (and the solution). Unfortunately I couldn't get access to the post to delete it by then. :(
It was a stupid mistake on my side, that went unnoticed all the times I checked and doublechecked everything: the headerswere wrong ! :oops: Instead of Text 1, Text 2, Text 3, Text 4, Text 5 they were Text 1, Text 2, Text 2, Text 4, Text 5 .
Changing the erroneous second "Text 2" to "Text 3" solved everything.
