After clicking the Import button, the result was a message saying the file was added to my account but not brought directly into the editor as expected. Now what?

@Jonny - after importing files using the Import dialog the articles will appear in the Launch Pad window under the "Recent Articles" tab. Clicking on the article title will open it for editing. Do you see the articles there?
