Solved - Spektrum DX9 "Expecting STRING" issue. SPM files attached

Dear all,

I have been having some troubles with my DX9 lately. Adding to that - before sending it for repair - I made a back up of all my models.
At the same time it gives the opportunity to re-name many models. Re-importing them does not seem to work.

I get "12: '' Expecting STRING"

Now I took some models from Spektrum's site and compared the code. But wasn't able to find major differences. Any idea what's wrong here? My DX9 doesn't have any models in it right now, except for a few that did import..

Reflex V2.spm imported
Mini Vapor.spm did not import

You are trying to import version 1.20 files into pre-1.20 radio. Update your radio to 1.20.

Hi Andy, I have upgraded to 1.20 earlier today. Any thoughts?

Don't have radio handy to see what line number it reports that on. Do you know? The line number is on the error message.

Hi Andy, it says "12:" otherwise no information. Is that the line I should look at?
Appreciate your responses!

Edit: thanks to your lines remark I went and took a very close look at each and every character on line 12 of the file. I found the culprit were the quotes. They were slightly slanted, ever so slightly you would always look over it unless you focused on it. I copied the character of another file that did import - problem solved. All models imported.

Did you happen to open the file perchance before doing this? Or maybe download it into an editor?

It looks like the kind of change that an editor would do to match the local region quote character from the operating system.

Hi Andy,

Indeed, I opened it before, using Mac's standard text editor application.
