Unfortunately, when I go to get the “Vector File” PUB is not in the list of supported file types - and although I can see the file I want, it is greyed out.

I did read somewhere about a package dependency for the PUB import feature on the Mac, and suspect this may not have been compiled in to the DMG file I downloaded.
