There was this inherent problem when importing alignments using XML. The imported alignment lost most of the intelligence like Free, Floating, and Fixed…well, it didn’t lose Fixed. EVERYTHING was fixed.
Maybe you noticed the choice of words I used “There was…”. ‘nuff said.
edit: I hope I was clear in my post, but maybe I wasn’t based on Dave’s comment. THIS IS A GOOD THING! There WAS a problem prior to the 2012 release, now in 2012, the problem is gone. Dave, I hope I didn’t confuse things. It sounded to me as if you thought I was mentioning a bug.
