Text exporter question
« on: February 23, 2008, 01:23:42 AM »
As I understand Text Exporter can create a separate file for all images the exported infos are used from or it can put everything into one file repeating the parts of text entered in the text box as many times as many images are selected for the text export.

This enables one to generate files for lots of uses (like RSS feeds, or even certain HTML files too) but is there any way to have a portion of the generated file (practicaly a begginning and an end section would be the best) to be entered into the generated file using PM's variables but not repeating every time along with picture details.

If it is possible please let me know how!

No, it is not possible currently, but I think that's a great idea.  I can see how that would be useful and I will see what I can do to get that into the 4.6 version.

[EDIT:] I have completed the feature and it will definitely be in the 4.6 release version.

Thanks Kirk!

It is great to hear!

But anyway PM is usually capable to do even those things it seemingly cannot for the first sight. It is amazing how many programs can be avoided if PM is used mindfully.

Keep up the great work!
