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
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.

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).
