A bug or something, but if I import a text file in under the name 'a.txt' it gives an error: unable to open file, and if I rename the same file to '1_01.txt' it works :s :s Totally nuts. I'm know manually converting all my files so that it can work automatically. Sometimes a though how to avoid this bug/make it work without renaming manually the files?
