Export a phrase file

To export a phrase/folder/file, simply click & drag it out of the phrase tree view onto the Windows desktop.

Alternatively, highlight the file or folder in the phrase tree and click File » Export or click the menu bar icon.

The exported file can be imported or opened in PhraseExpress as an autonomous (stand-alone) phrase file.

When you export, you create an independent copy of the current phrase file. The currently loaded phrase file path of the PhraseExpress installation is not changed (use "Save phrase file" to change the storage location).

If the phrase file is password protected you will be asked if the protection shall be applied to the exported file.

The exported file does not include the phrase edit history, comments or linked phrases or external file contents that are located outside the exported phrase (folder). Also phrase links from folders outside of the exported folder will break.

To export phrases as a text file, use the phrase export function.
