When I draw a polygon in QGIS, and export as a geopackage (or shapefile) in EPSG:6318, then try to import into Metashape while setting outerBoundary as the boundary type it imports successfully but does not set the outer boundary.

I can set the outer boundary after import manually or with a python script.

I'm pretty sure I tried it as a shapefile too and tried a manual import. In all cases I had to set the boundary after import.

sample gpkg and jpg attached.

jpg shows logfile with "boundary_type = OuterBoundary" and context menu with /Set Boundary Type/None checked (project state immediately after import)

Hello andyroo,

Thank you for reporting the issue.

It seems that boundary setting is not applied on import for Multipolygons (and is applied to polygons properly). I think we should be able to fix it in the next version update.
