Using .xbs files saved from XnView Classic

I'm using XnView Classic for a long time. Today I gave a try to MP, primarily for its Curves tools and more powerful Adjust tool. And I must say MP seems to be very cool! (it was not intended to be rhymed :D )

One issue I've got for now is one with Batch convert presets (.xbs).

The formats of Classic and MP xbs-files are obviously different: Classic files have simple line-by-line textual format while MP files have xml format.
On the other hand, If I select Classic xbs for import in Batch convert dialog the import works but only a small part of saved params are restored.

What's with this thing? Is this a bug? Or Classic xbs is not planned to be supported? (not a horrible option though)

Regards!

It looks like only Actions are restored. Not flags, nor JPG quality.

Additionally, if the actions are Brightness and Contrast then they are restored as two full Adjust (Brightness-Contrast-Gamma) actions. This is understandable as for import behaviour but looks quite weird.

yes currently only actions are restored

yes all "classic" actions are imported as 'MP' actions

Ok.

Thank you for clarifying! :)
