Custom Delimiter for Deck Import

I installed the latest Win10 version, 2.1.57, and when I try to import a deck from a .txt file, the option to enter a delimiter is not available, only the 6 in the pulldown, which doesn’t include an “=”. The import interface seems to have changed from older versions where I can enter my own delimiter. I installed 2.1.54 instead. Note: this is my first use of Anki, so maybe I just don’t know what I’m doing…

This feature was removed in the newer versions. I believe the reasoning was that it was not worth the additional complexity or there is no big use case for custom delimiters.

ok, thanks! I’m taking an Italian Learning class and the .txt file w/ the flash card data is Italian word/phrase = English word/phrase. I’ll use a global replace to change the = to :. Seems like Flash Cards would often be A = B and including = in the list of static delimiters would be easy enough, not as a custom/user-defined entry.

Thanks for the quick response!
