Hi Alexander,

There are two things I'd like to do that require a second pass through FLEx:

- Add GRAID annotations in ELAN (https://core.ac.uk/display/144520140), then continue/improve glossing in FLEx.
- Improve transcriptions and translations during a second field trip in ELAN, then regloss in FLEx.

That ensures that any extra tiers you have that FLEx may ignore make into the final ELAN file.

Afaik one can go from ELAN to FLEx and back to ELAN, but not a second time to FLEx. There is a manual that involves a tier-renaming script at https://hughp.gitbooks.io/the-flex-anti-manual/content/chapter8.html, but I can't make it work. Is there a more fool-proof way yet?
