How Come The File Format Exported By SS6 Pro Is Not Also Recognized By SS6 Pro?

Hi,

It seems that the legacy observing list format that one can use in a programming language to create lists is still accepted by ver. 6.8.6.16 (pro)
but it doesn't _export_ in the same format. Furthermore, if I try to re-import what was exported out, I get an error that the format isn't recognized!

Please advise.

Phone OS: Android 8.0.0
SkySafari Pro 6 (6.8.6.16)

To reproduce: create a raw import in this format:

SkySafariObservingListVersion=3.0
SkyObject=BeginObject
ObjectID=2,-1,-1
CatalogNumber=<some ID>

EndObject=SkyObject
...

This imports successfully. I can rename the list, and email out again to myself.

However, this outputted <something something>.skylist file cannot be re-imported! It fails...and if I look at it, it's in an entirely different format altogether; one that resembles a CSV, but using spaces/tabs instead of commas.

Very peculiar bug.

    Hi Kyle Hendicks

    Can you comment on the .skylist file format, what, if anything, has changed in the code in SS6 and SS7, and what should work now for both versions?

    Thanks!
