Synfig-import-labels template problem


#1

When loading labels.txt-
“Could not load template descending-text…”

How do I "…verify your ‘TEMPLATE_DIR’ in settings.py "

The following “labels.text” loads successfully:

start stop text template
0.500 1.50 first sentence showing for 1 second descending-text
1.50 1.90 cool ! fromleft-text
2.40 3.2784 your imagination is the limit ! revealing-text

I guess maybe I need to learn the basics of why the first text pasted in took the visible formatting, and why the second example does not.
Ia that the issue?

please see my answer at https://github.com/berteh/synfig-import-labels/issues/18

There may be an issue with missing from your labels file (seems to be only spaces)… but it goes a bit beyond that.
To get rid of the issue you can use another column separator (for instance ‘;’), but need to change the config file accordingly.
