Radical Dictionary & Flashcards - iOS/Android tested

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"?
 
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.
Update
I reinstalled Pleco so I have tests using the pre made cards available again but the radicals txt is no longer within Pleco.
 
Hello, I am needing help with getting the radical flashcards file to install. The instructions are old on this post, so I've tried following the tutorial online which I expect is more up to date.

1. Are the files at the beginning of this thread is a "dictionary" or a "flashcard" file, or are they both posted?
2. When I try to share the zipped file from my email app (clicking the up arrow icon) I only am asked if I want to "copy to" pleco rather than what your tutorial said which was "open in" pleco. When I select "copy to" it just opens the radical file in the reader.
 
Sorry I didn't finish the last post yet...


I tried to upload a different flashcards file besides the radicals one, as well and ran into the same problem as described in #2 above.

BTW I love your app!

Sorry for the confusion.

1) Same format, actually - can import it as either.
2) "Copy To" is a change in iOS nomenclature, but it's the same operation. The file will be in the 'Inbox' folder in Pleco's file storage; go into the sidebar menu in Pleco, Import/Export, Import, Step 2, then choose that file (in Inbox) as the file to import.
