Why I don't see flowNodeRef while exporting to BPMN? In what lane element is?

I have a simple diagram: one pool with two lanes and several elements.When I try to export it to BPMN I can't understand from the BPMN (xml) file to what lane each element belongs. For example:

... <process id="Id_f4dcdc8b-5b93-43b1-9d5d-229e920633a9"> <documentation /> <laneSet id="Id_fed03d26-aa20-444f-aef7-47e547e95b74"> <lane id="Id_121db85c-ff99-4871-8b7d-65cbf1e9200c" name="Lane 1"> <childLaneSet id="Id_abe0aaba-4761-408c-a433-38874d12550a" /> </lane> <lane id="Id_97eca08e-0eea-4d1c-a557-dfe3ef4757c0" name="Lane 2"> <childLaneSet id="Id_1fda534d-244b-4680-8a7a-6bce964d1742" /> </lane> </laneSet> <startEvent id="Id_c40dc6a8-2a11-4fba-992b-e00ddb93411b" name="first start event"> <extensionElements> <bizagi:BizagiExtensions xmlns:bizagi="http://www.bizagi.com/bpmn20">; <bizagi:BizagiProperties> <bizagi:BizagiProperty name="bgColor" value="#E6FF97" /> <bizagi:BizagiProperty name="borderColor" value="#62A716" /> </bizagi:BizagiProperties> </bizagi:BizagiExtensions> </extensionElements> <outgoing>Id_71aa78ee-533f-4909-8b33-357e6cb27b55</outgoing> </startEvent>

...

While investigation on BPMN standard and its examples (http://www.omg.org/spec/BPMN/20100602/2010-06-03/Incident%20Management/Incident%20Management%20level%201.bpmn) I find out that "flowNodeRef" should be present. For example:

<semantic:process isExecutable="false" id="_6-1">

<semantic:laneSet id="ls_6-69">

<semantic:lane name="Account Manager" id="_6-77">

<semantic:flowNodeRef>_6-81</semantic:flowNodeRef>

<semantic:flowNodeRef>_6-94</semantic:flowNodeRef>

<semantic:flowNodeRef>_6-196</semantic:flowNodeRef>

<semantic:flowNodeRef>_6-313</semantic:flowNodeRef>

<semantic:flowNodeRef>_6-423</semantic:flowNodeRef>

</semantic:lane>

<semantic:lane name="1st level support" id="_6-79">

<semantic:flowNodeRef>_6-333</semantic:flowNodeRef>

<semantic:flowNodeRef>_6-263</semantic:flowNodeRef>

</semantic:lane>

<semantic:lane name="2nd level support" id="_6-61">

<semantic:flowNodeRef>_6-63</semantic:flowNodeRef>

<semantic:flowNodeRef>_6-289</semantic:flowNodeRef>

</semantic:lane>

<semantic:lane name="Software development" id="_6-287">

<semantic:flowNodeRef>_6-190</semantic:flowNodeRef>

</semantic:lane>

</semantic:laneSet>...Can Bizagi work in proper way? What settings I need to enable in Bizagi to get apropriate BPMN (xml) schema?

Dear Cat,

Actually, when Bizagi exports to BPMN 2.0, it does not include that information. The only way to do it is visually using coordinates of the element relative to the Lane. It is considered to fit in a future release.
