I have a user waypoint csv file that only loads the first 26 waypoints. I must be missing something, but it never loads past the first 26 entries. No error messages either. The file is attached. If somebody has any suggestions, I'd be interested to hear them.

Thank you.

Did I post this question in the wrong place?

Thank you

Just a guess but there is likely a limit to the number of way points you can import/store.

I agree, but 26 seems like a very low and random number.

Maybe edit it and move a few rows around, see if it still stops at 26 or not?  Might indicate if there's a special character or something hidden in the file...

I took a look and made some edits (commas, non-basic characters), but I'm seeing issues loading it as well. I actually couldn't get any of them to import here. I've asked our engineer to take a deeper look.

So an update here - it looks like the CSV file was formatted with only carriage returns ("\r"), where you really want carriage return and line feed ("\r\n"). You can see these characters if you use a text editor that has a "show all characters" or similar mode.

We ran a quick replacement and everything loaded just fine (see attached csv).

We'd imagine that most people edit CSVs using MS Excel, so we took a look through all the various CSV save options to see if any of them created this problem.  Saving as "CSV (Macintosh)(*.csv)" is the only format available in MS Excel which looks to reliably cause this problem, all the other formats available structure the line breaking correctly.

So the fix is pretty easy if someone is using MS Excel, just save the csv in any format except Macintosh..  We don't know if there are issues if one is editing on a mac platform (we're mostly PCs here). 

What editor/computer platform did you create your file with?

You are awesome! I have a Mac and used Excel to add to the file I had made on the SkyView. I'll use a raw text editor from now on.

Thank you very much!
