Pictures not downloaded with Cards from Googledrive

Pictures not downloaded with Cards from Googledrive

Postby Lisa » Tue Jul 07, 2020 2:43 am


I use the app for some years now, but recently haven't been able to include pictures on cards anymore.

I create spreadsheets in Excel with columns Text 1, Text 2, Picture 1, Category 1.
On the drive I have a folder called "Flashcards Deluxe" containing both the spreadsheets and extra folders called "spreadsheet name Media", containing pictures.

After downloading the app did not recognize the column names (Text 1, Text 2 etc.) and showed the names of picture files instead of the pictures themselves.

I already doublechecked if I printed the names correctly and tried several downloads.

Thanks for your help!!

Best wishes, Lisa

Hi Lisa,

Sorry for the slow response.
Not sure, but...
1) Is your first card "Text 1"....? If so, you have a problem with the header. Make sure "Text 1" doesn't have any spaces before or after.
2) Assuming your header didn't make a fake card, make sure there is no space before or after the "Picture 1".
3) Make sure there is no formatting in that header row. This could mess up the import. I think formatting is generally OK (bold should be), but not sure about text colors and other things like italics, etc.
