Scroll case and Gem bag not importing

Do scroll cases and gem bags import from BG EE into SOD? I have one game which was an auto start as a result of completing BG EE. That one the scroll case and Gem bag have come across.

I doing another run through. It's not finished but the characters are all maxed on Xp, so I thought I would import that but the scroll case and gem bag hasn't come across.

    If you're playing in the SoD engine (which I always do), then SoD will start automatically on Sarevok's death and all equipment will be the same. I'm not sure what happens if you import from a saved game, but I'm pretty sure you don't get containers if you import from character files.

    I don't recall if containers import, but their contents do not. If you want something to carry over, take it out of the bags.

    If the game just continues from BG to SoD on its own. you're fine.

    To answer my own question, just in case anyone wants to know.

    Ran some tests. Did a save with the party in the temple and everything dead except Sarevok.

    Import save:
    Scroll case, gem bag and potion case don't import. Characters get a load of extra items

    Kill Sarevok and let it auto import.
    Characters get no extra items except for the keys. Potion case, scroll case and gem bag including contents come across if they are not on Imoen. If they are on Imoen they didn't transfer to another character. I haven't tested, if end up in her chest in the Palace.

    Is this on iso (iPad)
    Been trying to find the answer to this question for days nothing is clear at all that I’ve read so far

    Think iPad version works differently. Above is on the PC version. There was another thread that mentioned this. Wil try to find it

    On iPad and iPhone (iOS) no containers get transfered.

    You have to unpack and carefully choose your items when you export your savegame or character. Wish there where a workaround for this.
