Some commands in IJ2 fail in a very apparent fashion. They should be addressed preferentially. See blockers to this ticket.

(In #1946) This seems like a situation where the synchronizer needs to be smart about the limitations of IJ1. If the IJ2 version of the image has multiple distinct color tables, then it should certainly not overwrite all of them with the ImageJ1 color table. It would be ideal if the ImageJ1 color table could somehow be tied to the "correct" color table in ImageJ2, and then only that one would get synchronized in case of changes in ImageJ1-land. The simplest approach would be to always use the first color table of the IJ2 image for this.

In the case of the image being restructured, it becomes less clear how to maintain this mapping. But for the workflow above, no restructuring takes place—pixel values are merely zeroed out. So it might work.

However, there are many other potential compatibility issues, even if we were to employ this strategy. Because in ImageJ1-land, as you say, the color table *is* only red, and anyone expecting things being otherwise (based on their perception from the modern UI) will be disappointed.

Booting this ticket to imagej2-b10-compatibility, since we have bigger fish to fry.
