126.96.36.199 Automatic synchronisation of document type and collections
When importing, the document type and the collections are automatically synchronized with those of the exported variant. This behaviour is currently not configurable.
188.8.131.52 Setting the 'synced with' pointer
Upon import, if a new version has been created, the 'synced with' pointer of this new version will point to the export language variant version.
If no new version has been created because the document already contained the same data as in the export, than the 'synced with' pointer of the last version will be updated to point to the exported version, unless the 'synced with' would already point to a newer version.
184.108.40.206 No creation of new documents
The TM import never creates new documents, it only updates variants or adds variants.
Since the import tool reads the exported document upon import (e.g. for syncing the language-independent properties), it is required the document already exists anyway.
220.127.116.11 An export can only contain documents from one language variant
18.104.22.168 Subset imports
If you want to specify a subset of documents to import, you can do this in the same way as for the normal import tool, but you need to know that the set of documents specified should be the target variants of the import.
