I added lines to a .aren file that I saved from the gui, but when I try to load it, it doesn't load. I just get the "No methods in use. Click the Add button to add new methods."

existing, working file:
...
method0001=methodname:"replace"; active:"1"; replace:"v0"; replacewith:"a". . .
method0002=methodname:"replace"; active:"1"; replace:"v1"; replacewith:"b". . .
method0003=methodname:"replace"; active:"1"; replace:"v2"; replacewith:"c". . .
...

file with lines added (doesn't work):
...
method0001=methodname:"replace"; active:"1"; replace:"v0"; replacewith:"a". . .
method0002=methodname:"replace"; active:"1"; replace:"v1"; replacewith:"b". . .
method0003=methodname:"replace"; active:"1"; replace:"v2"; replacewith:"c". . .
method0003=methodname:"replace"; active:"1"; replace:"v3"; replacewith:"d". . .
method0003=methodname:"replace"; active:"1"; replace:"v4"; replacewith:"e" . . .
...

(I'm only showing the relevant parts of the file contents)

You should be able to edit the file by hand, but you should notice that the program will just reject the file if it has any errors. I will not give you a clean error message. I notice you have method0003 more than once. They should have incrementing numbers. Try to rename them so they are unique and with no gaps in the numbers.
