Import Error for xyz File Due to Encoding Format

OptiSurface Designer shows an error when importing xyz file.

Error says:
      "Sorry but OptiSurface Designer is having problems reading the numbers on line 1 or 2.
       Please check the file and try again."

Image below shows the xyz file opened in a text editor application like notepad.

Open the file using a text editor like Notepad and go to File > Save As > select ANSI for Encoding.

Import the saved file using OptiSurface Designer and it should import without having the error previously shown.
