    Hi Katie
    When you select the file of primers from Github, you'll need to then choose the "Raw" option to get a plain tab-delimited text format that you can copy and paste (unfortunately I can't upload images in the comments, but I'll amend the post above to show this).

    You can actually copy and paste the raw text directly into Geneious without an intermediate file. Just right click somewhere in the Geneious document table and go "Paste" and you'll then get a prompt for the format (choose tsv) and a window where you can specify which column is the sequence etc. The screenshots above show how to format the TSV import window so that they are imported as primers.
