Tiff file doesn't preserve layers

I have an issue exporting to tiff format. When I edit a tiff file with layers and I export it to the same format, the new file doesn't preserve the layers. It seems the process flattens the image and I lose all the layer information. Why is this happening?

Thank you very much,

The implementation of the Tiff format in Pixelmator is without layers. There is a dscussion going over this for years now but the Pixelmator team holds to the standard that Tiff files are flatt files and not layered files. If I'm not mistaken layered Tiffs are an adoption done to send multiple pages by fax.
