To import ﬁles from local disks or network drives, click File → Import → From ﬁle. This will open up a ﬁle dialog. Select one or more ﬁles and click Import. If the automatic ﬁle format detection fails, select the ﬁle type you wish to import (Figure 3.1 ). Files can also be dragged and dropped from your hard drive directly into Geneious and the ﬁle type will automatically be determined. The diﬀerent ﬁle formats that Geneious can import are described in detail in the next section.
Files imported from disk are imported directly into the currently selected local folder within Geneious. If no folder is selected, you will be prompted to choose a folder during the import.
