Dear observers, could you please explain how to use ZTF data with VStar? I use simple format [JD, Mag], but VStar avoid to import just one simple file. How to join in the plot zg and zr data, if VStar avoid one unspecified data set? And other question - how to join ZTF with AAVSO imported lightcurve?

In the meantime you could use Max's Flexible Text Format plugin: https://www.aavso.org/vstar-plugin-library#flexible
If you can't get this to work and have a file you are trying to open please send it to me via email (see my AAVSO contact page) and I'll have a look.
