I checked different project files and together with Steve found the source for that problem. This only happens if keyframe names are not unique and different keyframes share the same name. This was not checked in previous versions. The latest version only takes the first keyframe and skips the rest which leads to a different export file. Steve will add a routine that each keyframe gets a unique name automatically when opening a old project file.

You guys are on top of it, thank you!  btw, the color picker always on top makes is a good update.

The latest version should generate the same export as the old version, also fix the hash display problem and the GIF export/import for 192x64 

Please test

Yes, I think you guys fixed those issues.  I can't detect any differences on the machine play from old vs. new exports.  Hash display and 192x64 GIF appear to be working perfectly.  Thanks!

Here is a small quirk.  Let's say you have colored a scene that has several frames in it, let's say 4 frames for example.  Later, you want to break that scene into 4 individual scenes (each having one of the frames in it), so that you can assign a keyframe to each one.  What I do is just save the scene as a single animation, then load that animation 4 times back into the project, then use the "Frame-" button to edit (delete) 3 frames from each scene.  The quirk is after I use "Frame-" to edit the first scene, and click on the next scene to edit, the "Frame-" button is greyed out.  You can use the < > arrows to shuffle back and forth thru the scene, but you can't use the "Frame-" button.  However, if you click on any recording, then click back on scene you want to edit, the "Frame-" button will once again be active.  It isn't a big deal because you can accomplish what you want to do by clicking outside of the scene list, but you didn't have to do this in the old version.

First of all why don´t you just mark start - mark end - cut each individual frame of the colored scene instead of using export / import  ?
I never used the Frame +/- buttons so far. As always please report issues like this on github. Steve does not read this thread very often
and you make sure that the issue does not get forgotten that way.

I  cut and colorize scenes in a multiple frame fashion because it seems easier to use the clipboard functions to color the frames that way.  Then I try to set a keyframe for the scene, but for some reason sometimes the scene will only partially work, meaning that it will play back some of the frames in the way I colored them  and,  I don't know how to explain it,  but then lose it's way or get out of sync somehow and revert to a different palette.  It's only then that I try to break up the scene using export/import and set more keyframes.   Maybe I'm not doing this the best way but still learning, and will gladly take any advice you can give me.   I didn't even realize you could mark and cut scenes (thought it was just for recordings), but yes that is a better and more direct way to do it!

I will put this issue on github for Steve.  Do you want people to close their own issues on github when they get fixed or do you want to do that?

Probably another stupid question, but I cannot see what Ctl-A  (Select All) does.  Ctl-C loads the clipboard with  color masks that can be used from frame to frame with Ctl-V, I see that.  When I do Ctl-A, I can see that there is a highlighted box around the entire frame and the cursor changes to a four-direction arrow, but when I go to another frame and click Ctl-V, nothing seems to happen.  What am I missing here?

CTRL-A is just marking ALL. You could use it to mark the whole frame first and move the borders to the area you want to cut instead of using the dotted rectangle tool and drag it around the area.

What is the trick in getting the borders to  move?  It looks like there are grip points on each edge, but I cannot seem to resize the box by clicking on them or any part of the edge.
