How can I import urls from a text file?

I have over 6 million urls that I have saved in a text file. I would like for OE to download them. However, I cannot find where to load from text file as an option within OE.

Note: I do see that I can "shift copy/paste" and they are added to a project. However, this seems like it will crash OE when I attempt such a large copy/paste operation.

Thanks,
Tom

You should use URL Macros for that. Supply the following line in the Project's URLs field:

{:file=c:\dir\file.txt}

Perhaps, it might be better to split it in several files to speed up the download start.
