Importing From Excel

There is no direct import feature from Excel into CueBrain, it but can be done with some quick copy and paste. Actually, the built-in cue card sets are all done with the help of Excel.
  1. Create a dummy cue card set in CueBrain
  2. Save it to SD card
  3. Open this file in a text editor on your PC/Mac (such as Notepad, or Notepad2).
  4. You will notice the format is pretty straightforward: cue=answer pairs on each line
  5. Copy and paste your cells from Excel into this file
  6. Replace all tab characters with the = character. You can copy and paste one of the tabs into the Replace field in the Replace dialog box.
  7. To enable the correct speech, put the following lines at the top of the file:
<cueLanguage>en</cueLanguage>
<answerLanguage>es</answerLanguage>
or
<cueLanguage>es</cueLanguage>
<answerLanguage>en</answerLanguage>
…depending on whether cues or answers are Spanish.

 

See here for a list of all the language codes you can use.

If you also need a country code, like English Canadian, you can append it like so: “en_CA”. See
here for country codes. Use the two-letter version.

Happy custom cue carding!
