Congrats on the new app! It looks like you've really added a lot of new features.

Could you please explain the new procedure for importing CSV or TSV files with Asian fonts?

It used to be I would have to save Exel files as UTF-16 code text and then choose to a format from the import window which made them selectable for import . Now my old files are no longer selectable for import, and I don't see any alternate way to preserve the fonts. When I re-save the files as comma separated or tab separated they are selectable but the Chinese characters and tone marks show up as "__".

    UTF16 or UTF8 should work for asian fonts. You need to make sure the file extension is csv or tsv (lowercase).
    If you can't get it to work, please send me an example.
    Kind regards,

    Great that did it, thanks!
    Using Exel's save as function for comma or tab separated values somehow corrupts the data. But simply changing a .txt file extension to .tsv makes the file selectable for import.
