All information is lost when switching DSTs

I've started digitizing my player's sheets again, and in doing so remembered that I had started playing with my own DST. (Never finished it years ago)
We run DnD 3/3.5/3.T so I started off using one of the newer sheets (I think).
But when I switched sheets to see what the other ones looked like now that the site has had such a major update... I noticed all the information gets wiped out when the sheet changes.

Previously, one or two years ago, certain bits would get wiped out because of incompatible tags or... what have you, but now EVERYTHING gets wiped.

Is this a known issue? Is there a way to fix it?

    Hi again!
    Just wondering if you guys had any insight on this yet. :)

    I've tested it over a few PCs (and sheets), with the same result.

    Taking the reigns on this item, I will discuss this with our DST guru and tech team for further details.

    Thanks guys. I wasn't even aware of this, but the issue definitely still exists.

    Aaron/Andrew, this should be logged as a bug for tech. When a new DST is selected from the drop down, the current data is overwritten rather than being used. This appears to be a consequence of where that data is being stored in the page structure (inside the section of the page which is overwritten with the new template).

    Update has been recorded. I'll get this to tech.
