gedcom export / import

Hi all,

if I export a FTM file to a Gedcom file and import this file into FTM again, what information will then be lost?

I tried this using FTM 16 and found my datafile shrunk from 46 Mb to 38Mb. But the number of 'text records' grew about 20% and apparantly I lost 3 family names.

Has anybody got experience with the gedcom export / import tools?
