[Resolved] Migrating Views from old site (Views plugin) to new site (Blocks plugin)

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem:

Using Toolset's Import/Export, The only tabs on the new site's Import/Export are Types, Associations, and Forms. I don't see any options of Views.

Solution:

The export/import tab for Toolset Blocks has been disabled on purpose, our developers are working on it, but I am not sure when will this feature will be implemented.

Currently, you will try as you mentioned above, manually recreate the content template and view blocks.

I'm refreshing a site manually due to a hack (can't use Duplicator), but it's a pretty simple site anyway. The old site used the Views plugin to create a view, and the new site uses the Blocks plugin with "both Legacy and Blocks" interface checked in Settings.

I can export (using Toolset's Import/Export) the view from the old site, and it creates an appropriately named zip file. However, there's no Views tab on the new site because I don't want to install the legacy plugin during this re-do. I've selected "Legacy and Blocks" option for views in Settings. The only tabs on the new site's Import/Export are Types, Associations, and Forms. I don't see any options in Settings that might add this capability.

It's a fresh install, and I'm been able to import Types and Forms successfully. All plugins are up to date (Blocks, Forms, Types) and even all WP plugins are up to date.
