For your information, exported canvases doesn't define the size and the fps. On previous versions, when a canvas doesn't define that, they are get from its patent canvas and fallback to defaults if not a parent is found. Looks like in the development version, exported canvases doesn't look up whether there is a parent canvas and so, it always fallbacks to the default.

An additional problem with the development version is that it's not even falling back to the user's defaults that they specified in the Synfig Studio Setup dialog box (File > Setup...), but it's falling back to hard-coded values.
