Description

I am new to QGIS but when I try to use the delimited text plugin to create a layer, I receive an error message that the layer is not a valid layer and can not be added to the map. This is the same or similar to the following error
http://trac.osgeo.org/qgis/ticket/1022

I downloaded the convert new lines software and tried to solve the problem that way but continue to receive the same error as before. I am unable to parse the file and the x and y coordinates simply contain the entire txt file.

I've been working on solving this problem for the past seven hours and am losing my mind.

In your screenshot I see you used double quotes around the comma, this is not necessary/wrong. Please give it a try without and report back.

If the problem persist I would say that your problem is probably the same of #1022

I'm closing this for lack of feedback and as seems that was made a mistake, but I would ask to other Mac users to check this one and reopen if necessary. Thanks.

I've used this plugin without problems. The only thing that is an issue is the line feeds in the file. I forget now which line feeds make it fail, but this can be an issue (a separate one, though – if I encounter it again in the future, I'll file a correct bug on that).

I guess it exist already: #1022

That's why you're the person in charge of bugs! Thanks
