I searched around, but I could not find an answer to this question. How can I export only parent files (and not their children)?
I would like to export a set of files to .rtf. However, I do not want to export their children (the files contained within them). When I highlight a set of files (or even one file), and export, I get a folder titled with that file’s title. Within that folder are a set of rtf files, including one with the tile and content of the file I am trying to export. What I want is a all of the files I selected (and only those I explicitly selected) in a single folder.
I looked for a setting in export preferences (something like "omit child folders on export) but could not find anything. I know I can move the files I want to someplace else and delete the child files, but then I need to do that folder maintenance every time I export these files. I thought that if I export from a collection (as those are flat), it might work. But, alas, it did not. I can sync that collection to a folder, but I already have syncing to an external folder set up for this project, so if I do that, then I will need to reset all the sync settings each time.
If there is currently no way to do this, may I suggest an “export only parent files” checkbox in the “Import & Export” preference panel or even better in the “Export Files” dialogue sheet.
