Import from template


Hi, when I want to import from a template, a window pops up. There is "Drag & drop one file here or select one file from your computer...". I try to click on the red words starting "select one..." but nothing happens. Those red words indicate that I should be able to locate my exported file. But it doesn't work. Instead I need to drag it into the window manually.
On the web this works perfectly. My finder window shows up and I am able to choose my exported file.
Can you help me so that it also works on Mac?
Thank you.

Hi Richard,

Unfortunately, our Mac app has limitations due to the engine we're using. We're planning to improve it even further so it may be addressed in the future.

We have just released a new version of the Mac app that fixes different issues, and one of the fixed issues is related with the import/export of templates. Now you should be able to import/export templates from our Mac app! :-)

This new version (5.x) is only available for Mac OS X 10.9+. You can download it from our Mac app website (https://todoist.com/mac) or on the Todoist app menu, clicking on "Check for Updates...". Soon it will be available to download from the Mac App Store.
