I decided to try out the workbench today, to see if the debugging would work for me. 
I created a new project. 
Then I tried to import an existing notebook, using both options (input/initialization) which resulted in exactly nothing showing up in the imported file (except for a header). 
The import did however manage to screw up my original notebook file, which, of course, should NEVER be possible in  an import. Perhaps naively I did not back up my original file before. This seems to me like a serious programming error. An import should always read a file read-only. It is unacceptable that changes are made to the imported file without even any warning.
My well-organized notebook was turned into some flat *.m - type document. Of course, the codes are still in (I hope) but in an unusable form. I have a week old backup, but I made quite a lot of changes, also in the formatting which is of course irrecoverable. This is frustrating. Did I do something wrong? Any suggestion of how to turn this back into a notebook format?
