This is probably related to how Aliases work, not EDS files or Studio 5000 revision levels.

When you upload from a controller without a matching project file, it's well known that you won't get the Tag Descriptions or the Rung Comments.

What's less well known is that because Studio 5000 is creating the Tag Database from scratch, it "collapses" Aliases and reads the base tag.

I'm most familiar with how this works if you have multiple levels of Aliases, where an Alias tag points to another tag which points to a Module-created base tag.

I'm not certain what's happening here. I think to investigate it, we should start with a description of the I/O platform whose tags were "converted" in format.
