I decided to take the plunge and migrate my LJ entries over into DW. It turns out I waited long enough for the queue to die down, and the process was completed by the time I checked an hour later.

My first question was, what would happen to the cross-posted entries I've been making for the last few months? Would I get duplicate entries? And the answer is no, the tool is smart enough to recognize these entries; it doesn't duplicate them, but it does import the LJ comments to the DW entry.

Now I have more questions.

1) Is there any way to search your journal online? The search function on DW pages is for whole journals, not for individual entries by keyword within your own journal, which is what I want.

2) Or I could download it. There used to be a marvelous LJ tool for downloading, but it broke in one of the LJ updates and has never been fixed. Is there some kind of equivalent for DW? And I do not mean the hopeless Export Journal tool, which only downloads entries not comments, saves them in a ridiculous and useless format, and apparently only takes one month at a time. I want something better than that.
