I'm curious what it is you want to do, that requires a second pass through

I've had to think about this with my work, since some of my recordings are
conversations, which FLEx doesn't handle very well, so generally I just
have a separate EAF file per speaker, tag and gloss each separately in
FLEx, then merge all of them together in a single ELAN file with the 'merge
transcription' function. That ensures that any extra tiers you have that
FLEx may ignore make into the final ELAN file.
