Albert, can you be more specific? What command are you using? Opening an XML file from within TrakEM2 on top of IJ2? Can you layout the exact steps to recreating you problem? Thanks.

create trakem2 project, push s to save it into an xml file, them run imagej2 file open. You will see that it does not open as TrakEM2, but the LOCI dialog opens.

The IOService framework for ImageJ2 is complete and available. File > Open uses this framework, looking for available IOPlugins. Some future version of TrakEM2 could provide such a plugin to make File > Open work in ImageJ2 UIs. But actually, the issue will be mostly moot due to the fact that for now, ImageJ2 is going to stick with the IJ1 UI. It will (optionally) override the behavior of File > Open to use IOPlugins first -- which includes use of SCIFIO and hence better TIFF support as well as OME-TIFF and other formats extensible via SCIFIO plugins. But it will also fall back to IJ1's approach if none of IJ2's IOPlugins are appropriate, which should be the case for TrakEM2 XML files.

I am closing this as "fixed" since TrakEM2 XML files should work with IJ2 while in its default IJ1 UI mode, and there now exists a mechanism to make TrakEM2 XML files work in "pure IJ2" as well.
