Hi,

Is it possible to export selection sets into excel?
Wanted to export the non-duplicate items details.

Information like item path, points location wanted in the excel.
There are only "current search sets", "search sets" available...

Anyone know how to do it??

I made Selection sets into search sets:
Right click on selection sets then "add current search sets"
then export "search sets xml"
I got this:

2_3

But how to get points for all selections?
As i know only "export viewpoint xml"
can export all x,y,z points

What i did is making selection sets into Search sets
then export "search sets xml".

But i wanted points in x,y,z just like result from
exporting "viewpoint xml"...
Or any other method to save a list of non-duplicate items
into every single viewpoints?
