Importing Puzzles (Pappocom software)

I somewhat can't figure out how to import puzzles.
Maybe that is not possible but in my opininiom there should be a way to import different puzzles and even text strings...

Just my thoughts about it.

If you're using Pappocom Sudoku, from this website, you can't "import" puzzles in a copy/paste fashion or load from file. But you CAN dub the clues in - just go to the file menu and there'll be an option to dub there (might be under New). Enter your clues - they'll appear in red - and when you're done click on Verify. Note, if there are multiple solutions to a puzzle or it uses advanced techniques that Pappocom doesn't use to solve, it'll come up as an invalid puzzle and won't let you go into solve mode.

and that's my problem:
any time i have to re-type the clues, i risk an error.
the tiniest typographical error would ruin the puzzle;
yes, it has happened to me - how about you?

yes you can import the puzzle as text,
as long as you make it look like a sudbook file.
