I have the flashcard add-on. I am on an iPhone 6
Most up-to-date instructions on that are at http://iphone.pleco.com/manual/30200/flashtut.html#importingotherflashcardlists - the Web Browser approach from the old ones only works nowadays if you have our Document Reader add-on.
Sorry to trouble you again Mike. I do have the document reader and I can view a file downloaded from the original post, i.e. the .txt file. I cannot import it as the encoding is wrong. Probably wasn't a good idea to download the file appearing under the Android instructions list but I assumed a txt file would be a txt file in iOS and would work equally well. Ideally I would like to have the radicals within the flashcard function rather than as a document. Still not there I'm afraid.
Actually, the file download link appearing under the Android instructions is probably irrelevant, it was the right file for the document viewer but I guess I need the .txt.zip file if I want to import flashcards, is that correct? If so where can I find it?
The text file should work too; it's in UTF-8, is that the encoding you're picking? How are you determining that the "encoding is wrong"?
The file I have available to import is radicals-120605.txt. If I import it I see the Encoding Check screen and about 10% of the characters I see are question mark in a box. If I proceed then try to use the imported file it is not available in the categories screen.
The question marks are normal, internal format flags. It wouldn't be categorized, by default - do you see the items in "Uncategorized"?
No, I try to start a test using Uncategorized but I get a pop up saying No Cards Found
Actually, I have no cards now. If I try a test using Level 1 of the HSK import that Pleco makes available if you don't have any cards of your own that no longer works either.
I reinstalled Pleco so I have tests using the pre made cards available again but the radicals txt is no longer within Pleco.
If you import it again does it work now?
Yes, it does. Thank you
