I do not understand why you think this.

A brief synopsis of the process:
1)You need a 2nd USB-stick inserted in a USB slot before you begin.
2)Click on the journal icon under the XO Avitar in f3 (Home) screen.
3)move the mouse cursor to the center of the screen.
4)In the left bottom of the sugar screen will be 2 USB icons
   - Journal
   - 2nd USB
5)click on the file in the journal listing that pops up when you click 
on the icon in the left bottom corner; and hold down the mouse as you 
drag the entry to the 2nd USB Icon next to it on the bottom left corner.
6) release the mouse button when you are over the 2nd USB Icon and a + 
will appear.

This is a "Drag-Drop" export to the 2nd USB-stick

Import to Sugar Journal is done just the opposite way:
1) click on a picture or .xo file on the 2nd USB that pops up when you 
click on the icon in the left bottom corner.
2) drag it with the mouse to the journal icon in the bottom left corner. 
A + will appear as it is added to the journal.

When you go to (f3) Home  Screen and click on the journal the new item 
will be in the journal.
Plus if it was an activity.xo file It will be installed.

(The drag-drop process in sugar does a hidden conversion of the journal 
files to ones that will work on a USB. It seems to be the only way to do 
an import/export in Sugar.)
