I'm sorry for the trouble you are experiencing. There is an issue in
the v13.00 - v13.00a release related to the restore customizations. The
developers have addressed this in the v13.10 release which is currently

Yes, there are functional differences. The Import/Export is only for
the uedit32.ini, which handles a majority of your customizations, but
not all. It was designed for the purpose of exporting your .ini for a
user who was switching from UltraEdit to UEStudio.
The backup/restore will export ALL of your settings: .ini, toolbar/menu
configurations, key mappings, etc.
