Import CSV file Skype for Mac

Cannot seem to import contacts.  It is well hidden if it is possible, if not, it is a ridiculous omission.
Dear Skype;
Please add the feature of importing contacts from a CSV file, or better yet from a google account.

There is no way to import contacts directly into Skype for Mac from a CSV file. However, you can import contacts (with email and phone information) into These system contacts can then be viewed in Skype using the Mac Contacts feature. See Preferences > General > Show Mac Contacts.
Part of the reason that it's not currently possible to import contacts in this way is because of the hadshake required: you must send a contact request to each contact you wish to add to your list. This includes a message explaining who you are, and why they should add you. Most people won't be able to receive a call or IM from you until they've accepted your contact request.
One last thing: your contact list is stored in the cloud. So when you log into Skype for Mac, you'll see your list of contacts just as it was on your Android device (for example).

  • Looking for a Notes app that I can import CSV files into?

    As the title says, I'm looking for a good notes application for my iPhone that I can import CSV files into. I have tried both Appigo and Notespark, but I can't easily scroll through them, as I have 2,000+ notes. Is there any app that I can import my notes into and also scroll through quickly? I'd like something that works similarly to how you scroll through songs on the iPhone/iTouch, with the column on the right where you can skip to songs (notes, in this case) that start with a certain letter.

    Hi Tx Tar Heel,
    I've been using Office2HD:
    Its cheaper than Numbers and it also works for Word and PowerPoint files too. I like the Dropbox integration. I can start on my Office docs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) in the office and then edit those files with Office2HD when I'm out of the office. Files saves right back to Dropbox so that when I get back to the office the files are already updated. Not bad for a $7.99 app!
    Hope this helps!

  • Is it possible to import MS Outlook Mail for MAC 2011 files into AppleMail?

    Is it possible to import MS Outlook Mail for MAC 2011 files into AppleMail?

    Yes and no.
    Outlook for Windows (or Mac) can save individual emails as .msg format, Apple Mail cannot import these but there is a utility that can convert them to the .eml format supported by Apple Mail.
    Outlook for Windows can also export entire folders of emails as PST files, again Apple Mail cannot import these but there are utilities which can convert PST files to the mbox format supported by Apple Mail.

  • Can I import contacts to outlook for mac with iphone?

    Can I import contacts to Outlook for Mac using my iphone?  I turned on sync in outlook and in itunes, but still not syncing.

    You need a vCard format.  I believe one option is to import your csv file to Google contacts, then export them as a vCard that can be imported to iCloud.

  • How to import csv-file in Numbers 3.2.2.

    I start using Numbers in stead of Excel. I would like to import csv-files from my bank, but when I open the csv-file in Numbers, everything is imported in the same cell. I composed a testfile: 01/08/2014,”text”,”more text”,”even more text” in Pages, exported to a textfile and changed the extension from .txt in .csv. It did not help, everything was in the same cell. What must be changed to become successful in importing csv-files? I am using Numbers 3.2.2. and an iMac with 2,8 GHz Intel Core i7 processor and 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 memory with OS X 10.9.4.
    Thanks, Joan Voormolen

    You can do this using Pages. Without using outside scripts or functions. The Pages Find/Replace function will let you change the delimiter on the data in your file.
    Open the file in Pages. Click Show Invisibles. (this will show you the delimiter used in the file)
    If you see a * as the delimiter, that is a space. Some data files are space delimited. This is a really poor way to delimit numerical data files.
    If you see a fat arrow to the right, the file is Tab delimited
    Obviously, a comma is not a hidden character. Some files are comma delimited
    Whatever else might have been used as a delimiter (for example a semi colon is sometimes used) will be apparent.
    The delimiter should be something that is not used anywhere else in the "data"... text, numbers, etc., you want to delimit. Numbers considers a comma as a valid delimiter for files with the suffix .csv . It considers a tab as a valid delimiter with files with the suffix .txt . It does not consider spaces a valid delimiter in with any file suffix. But some programs use odd delimiters (semi colon, colon, double spaces, etc) as delimiters.
    Use the Find command, then Find/Replace as you need to create that delimiter numbers recognizes. Let's say a semi colon was used as a delimiter. Enter the current delimiter (semi colon)  into the Find box. Pages should highlight all the instances of your entry. Enter a comma (to create comma delimited data file) in the Replace box. You should now see a comma as the delimiter.
    Important Don't forget, any other comma used in the file will also be considered a delimiter. (a comma in 1,000 for example). So check the data. If you see a comma used another way you will want to eliminate that BEFORE you do the "comma as delimiter" replacement. If you have 1,000, do a find/replace with comma as the find, nothing as the replace, first. THEN do the replacement of the semi colon.
    Now comes the "tricky" part from what I could see. You want to save this new file with a suffix of .csv. (Export the file) Numbers will only open a comma delimited file with separated data (by comma) if it's suffix is .csv. Pages only gives you limited export options and puts the file suffix on for you automatically. CSV is not one of the options!
    Choose Text. Pages will name the file .txt. Quit Pages. Go to the file on your desktop (or wherever you saved it). Change the file suffiix from .txt to .csv.
    That's it. Open the file with Numbers. Numbers will create a separate column for everything between the comma's.
    You can use this same method to alter your data file before you import it into Numbers. For example, one file I wanted to import had time=xxx . I only wanted the actual time, not the text attached to it, in my spreadsheet. I did a find/replace with "time=" as the find. A comma as the replace. Even though "time=xxx" is one "word", Pages identified the "time=" within the word to allow the replacement.
    Numbers does not provide a "choose delimiter" function when opening a file. Instead it automatically uses the standard delimiter based on the file suffix. CSV means Comma, so if the file is named .csv it will only look for and use a comma as the delimiter to put the data into separate columns. I believe .txt uses only a tab as the delimiter. In the above example you could find/replace to a Tab. Then Export to Text. And numbers will open the data into columns the way you want, without the extra step of renaming the file on your desktop.
    While some files use a second space (ie two in a row) as a delimiter that's a nasty way to delimit. You always want a specific delimiter that is not used within the data element.
    The above is to import numerical data into separate columns. You could use the same method to manipulate a file that contains text. Let's say you had a file with the suffix .txt. In the file are names and addresses.  John Smith 246 Rose Road . You want Name in one column. Address in another.  Look at all the spaces, which ones should be delimiters which not? Are there any delimiters in the file?
    If you open with Pages and choose show invisibles you can see. You might see John Smith --> 246 Rose Road. (the --> will look like a fat arrow in Pages). Numbers will open this file, IF it has .txt as the suffix, based on the Tab,  with name in one column, Address in another.
    Or you might see John*Smith**246*Rose*Road. Even though the creator of this intended two spaces to be a delimiter Numbers does not recognize that. Numbers will put everything into one column. The fix? In Pages, put a tab between name and address. Find/replace two spaces with Tab. Export, as Text.
    Based on what you see (with show invisible active) in Pages, you can use the Find/Replace function to create the specific delimiter you want (tab or comma). You can use that function to manipulate the file easily so the data you want shows up in separate columns. You may need to get clever to accomplish the unique delimiters. You might even need to do two passes with Find/Replace.
    In the instance above  if there was only one space between each element. (not two as a pseudo delimiter) You could replace all spaces with a tab in Pages. Export as Text.  Numbers will open that file with a column for each word (one for John, one for Smith). Then  "Merge" the two cells (columns) you want to put back together. 

  • Missing localizations in Skype for Mac

    there are a lot of localizations (bg, da, de, en, es, et, fr, it, ja, ko, nl, no, pl, pt_BR, ru, zh_TW) included in Skype for Mac, but some localizations which are present in Windows Version missing in Mac version eg. Czech.
    Is planned include Czech (and/or any other) localization into standard installation Skype for Mac?
    Note: Czech localization was in Skype for Mac before 5.x version, but in version 5.x missing.

    Hi All.
    Je-li pro Microsoft neúnosné udělat češtinu do Skype , pak jsem ochoten ji udělat já . Jediné co k tomu potřebuji , jsou původní , odemčené .nib soubory. Lokalizoval jsem zdarma spoustu aplikací pro Mac, včetně několika verzí Skype. Ale se zamčenými .nib soubory je to něco hrozného. Sice si je dokážu hacknout , ale pak je to dost nestandardní a nelze tak udělat vše.
     Když nemůžete dát češtinu do instalace , pak se to dá přeci řešit stáhnutím balíčku s češtinou zvlášť .
     If intolerable for Microsoft to do Czech Skype, then I'm willing to do it myself. All you need to do are original and unlocked. Nib files. I've located a lot of free applications for the Mac, including some versions of Skype. But it is locked. Nib files, it's horrible. Although you can do is hack, but it's pretty standard and so can not do everything.   If you can not give the Czech in the installation, then it can be addressed after all downloading package with Czech separately.

  • Importing CSV file and parsing it

    First of all I am very new to writing powershell code.  Therefore, my question could be very rudimentary, but I cannot find an answer, so please help.
    I'm trying to read a CSV file and parse it.  I cannot figure out how to access nth element without hardcoding its name.
    $data = Import-Csv $file   #import CSV file
    # read column headers (manually read the first row of the data file, or import it from other source, or ...)
    $file_dump = Get-Content $file  #OK, I'm sure there is another way to get just the first line, but that's not relevant
    $name_list = $file_dump[0].split(",")
    # access element
    $temp = $data[$i].Name  # works - but that's HARDCODING the column name into the script - what if someone changes it?
    #but what I want to do is
    $temp = $data[$i].$name_list[0]
    How do I do this in PowerShell?

    So you're asking how to get the first data point from the first column, no matter what the header is?
    Why won't you know what your input file looks like?
    You can always drop the first line of the file to remove the existing headers and then use the -Header parameter of Import-Csv to give yourself known headers to reference (this will only work if you know how many columns to expect, etc etc etc).

  • Mav Contacts does not import csv file

    Trying to import my Outlook exchange contacts to Mavericks Contacts.  Exported from outlook to excel. Saved excel file to csv format.  Tried to import csv file to Mavericks Contacts:  Error message says the csv file is not compatible.  Also imported the csv file to Numbers and saved again as another csv file.  Same error message.  Suggestions?

    The following was copied from the Contacts Help.
    Import contact information saved or exported from other apps. The files can be in LDAP Interchange Format (LDIF) or text format (tab-delimited or comma-separated value (CSV)).
    If you’re importing a tab-delimited or CSV file, make sure it’s formatted correctly using a text editor such as TextEdit.
    Remove any line breaks within a contact’s information.
    Make sure that fields in a tab-delimited file are separated by a tab, instead of by another character. Don’t include spaces before or after tabs.
    Make sure that fields in a CSV file are separated by a comma, instead of by another character. Don’t include spaces before or after commas.
    Make sure all addresses have the same number of fields. Add empty fields as needed.
    In Contacts, choose File > Import, select the file, change the encoding if necessary, then click Open.
    If you’re importing a text file, review the field labels.
    If the first card contains headers, make sure the headers are correctly labeled or marked “Do not import.” Any changes you make to this card are made to all cards in the file. To not import the headers card, select “Ignore first card.”
    To change a label, click the arrows next to the label and choose a new label. If you don’t want to import a field, choose “Do not import.”

  • Skype for mac?

    I am a Army wife and want to download skype for my new mac notebook. but i am so afraid of downloading it and it causing virus or failure somehow. i was very very prone to virus on my pc, which is why i got a mac. how is skype for mac? recommended or not?

    Nothing here to worry about. Look for Skype at VersionTracker or MacUpdate.
    Macs are not Windows PCs. See the following:
    Do You Need Anti-Virus Protection for Your Mac?
    According to Rich Mogull's article, Should Mac Users Run Antivirus Software?,
    "The reality is that today the Mac platform is relatively safe. There are hundreds of thousands of viruses and other malicious software programs floating around for Windows, but less than 200 are known to target the Mac, and many of those are aimed at versions of the Mac OS prior to Mac OS X (and thus have no effect on a modern Mac).
    It's not that Mac OS X is inherently more secure against viruses than current versions of Windows (although it was clearly more secure than Windows prior to XP SP2); the numerous vulnerabilities reported and patched in recent years are just as exploitable as their Windows equivalents. But most security experts agree that malicious software these days is driven by financial incentives, and it's far more profitable to target the most dominant platform."
    Mr. Mogull is a computer security expert. I recommend reading the entire article as it is quite informative.
