Variable exists but is not shown when using save/read with extension .m

My example maple code is

 

a:=b^2:

save a, "test1.m"

restart:

read "test1.m"

a;

 

after the read command, I can access the variable, but it is not shown under "Variables".

This lead to some confusion when debugging the worksheet. Can I change this somehow?

Using the input type file format is not a solution, since then reading takes forever for complicated expressions.

Further, in the read command documentation it says "This functionality is not intended for end users" for saving the file as .m. What does that mean?
