This dialog is called from the File menu:
The data is exported as tab-delimited text, one Record per line. The first line of the exported file will show the Fields being exported (tab-delimited) in the order they are presented in the data lines. When importing to another Catalogue this first caption line is ignored - so don't remove it. Multi-value fields have their values separated with ASCII value #29 - which show up in Notepad as squares (non printable characters). ASCII #11 is used in Text Block field data as the hard line return symbol.
If data is being exported for subsequent import to another Catalogue, you must ensure that any Custom Fields in the source data are created in the target Catalogue before import. Otherwise data for non-existent Fields is not imported - Portfolio will not add the Fields for you (it doesn't know what type they are!).
