I made a test to find what gets preserved when a Deck is exported (without including scheduling data):
Shouldn`t Stars and Flags behave in a similar way? Is it a bug?
- after importing that Deck into a second profile;
- then making changes in the flags (eg, removing cards that were previously flagged, and flagging cards that weren`t);
- then importing back this Deck into the first profile
- it results that the flag changes don`t get updated in this first profile
So, the second issue is that there is an inconsistency in the Flags when exporting Decks, because when importing the first time the Flags are preserved, but when importing an updated version of the Deck, the Flags changes are ignored.
I don`t know if those are bugs, but, for my use case, the best behavior would be that neither Flags, Stars ou Suspension gets exported.
