Adding puzzles from file doesn't work on ZenPad

I just got an Asus ZenPad 3s and installed Crosswords on it, v2.4.0.1. Using an external program, I downloaded a .puz file into a folder, Internal Shared Storage/crosswords. When I hit the + in Crosswords and then "From File", it just shows an empty "root" folder. I check the app permissions and Storage is enabled.

On my old tablet, I used to be able to navigate to where the .puz files get downloaded to.

How can I get this to work?

    Try to navigate to the file using whatever file browser app your zenpad has. Just tapping on a .puz file from there should give you the option to open with Crosswords. For some reason, some devices seem to block the internal file browser, and people freaked out when I took it out who it still works for.
