When a trip database is exported from BCN as a KML, the Name, and Description fields are passed along to the KML (as with the lat/long/etc.), but not the Notes field.
On the flip side, when a KML is imported into a trip database, only the Name field (along with the lat/long/etc.) is passed along to BCN, but not the Description or Note field.
I have a custom XLS file w/marco that writes KML's strictly for import into BCN. I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure out why BCN wasn't importing my Description field from my created KML. Finally, it dawned on me to take a step back, import a virgin KML file from GE, and when I did, I learned that BCN was stripping the Description field from the KML>placemark tag.
1. I'm I correct that BCN does not import the Description field from a placemark in a KML? If not, what could I be doing wrong?
2. If I am correct, are there any plans in future BCN updates to correct this issue and allow BCN to import the Description field of a placemark from KML's?
