Equalizer settings not restored on settings import

I've encountered this problem for years and it is pretty frustrating.  It takes many hours to get custom EQ assignments applied to all of my songs where I want them.  When I export settings and later import them (on the same device with the same music folder OR on a different device with the same music folder) the custom equalizers are restored, but they are not applied where they should be.

Example 1: I have a default custom EQ which I assign to Bluetooth, Wired, etc.  When I look at the EQ list after settings import, the list shows the correct icons under the custom EQ's that were imported, but the EQ is not actually in-use by the player when it should be, instead it just shows "Preset".  When I change to the custom EQ I wanted selected by default for Bluetooth, Wired, etc, the equalizer bars clearly move to the correct positions and now it sounds as it should.  When I choose "Save", all of the checkboxes that should have been checked were already checked, so I hit "Save" at the bottom of the dialog.  Now when I disconnect and reconnect Bluetooth, it properly selects the EQ it should have chosen before I issued the no-op "Save" of the settings that appeared to have already been applied.

Example 2: Even worse, song mappings to custom EQ's never seem to be restored on settings import.  This has been a problem for many years, but it would be so incredibly excellent if the many hours of EQ configuration settings weren't lost across export/import operations.  As above, I've run into this even if I am importing the settings on the same device with the music folder directory structure that it had when the settings were exported.  I would hope the EQ assignments are tied to the ID3 tag info and not the file path, but if that were the case then I shouldn't see this problem in the case of import settings on the same phone, only on a different phone.

If there's a way to make the above export/import operations restore things like they should, I would love to know how.

I love this player otherwise. Thanks for keeping it going!
