Can you send me the first three lines of the file? My guess is that it
looks like this:
!FORMAT=XDS_ASCII MERGE=FALSE FRIEDEL'S_LAW=TRUE
which would be interpreted by our XDS reader as being non-anomalous, even
though since it's unmerged there is probably nothing stopping us from using
the anomalous data anyway. (I need to double-check this, because I don't
understand why it would claim "FRIEDEL'S_LAW=TRUE" if I+ and I- are
actually kept separate.) If you instead produce a file that starts like
!FORMAT=XDS_ASCII MERGE=TRUE FRIEDEL'S_LAW=FALSE
then it will be accepted by the Phaser-EP GUI.

This may simply be a bug. Which version are you using? I had attempted to
make the GUI handle SHELX files more sensibly (to the extent that's even
possible), but I can't remember how successful I was, and it may have been
after version 1.8.4 was released. In general, SHELX format is the least
compatible of the supported inputs; it's just missing too much information.
