Preserve existing Baselines?

I am opening some existing .mpp files created in Microsoft Project, but I don't see the original baseline. Is it possible for Project Libre to open the Microsoft files and preserve the existing Baselines?

I do not have MSP.  If you want to send us your project file we can triage.  I know there is an export/Save-as bug with baselines.  It may be an open one connected with that... we do need to fix.  You can send the project to [email protected] and we can test it here and try to fix

Thank you for your kind and genrous offer. We depend on the Initial Baselines set up in MS Project for our existing contracts - but we also need the abilty to move back and forth between MS Project and ProjectLibre. I really tried to deploy PL to my company, but if the baselines aren't preserved during transfers, I simply can't. I use ProjectLibre personally, and I'll try to keep up to date on this Project to see if you can get this working.

Thanks for your note... we are swamped with the rewrite but are trying to balance this when companies need specific development.  You can send a message to [email protected] if you guys want to engage us in a side development project.  Let me know and it would be great to get ProjectLibre rolled out.... we also are doing other customizations if that is helpful!
