Using Exporters

...version française de cette page

Exporters allow, as their name indicates, to export items.

Like actions, Exporters implemented in plugins can be used in two ways:

  • The interactive mode: selected items in the view are exported.
  • The step mode a step uses an exporter to export all items in a result.

Interactive mode

To use the interactive mode, start by selecting items in a view.

Then click on the button !{height:24px}!upload.png! in the toolbar of the view (you will have to select export file path).

Some Exporters are designed to export only one item per file (for example to export 2D or 3D grids). In this case only the last selected item will be exported.

Step mode

To use the step mode, you must add the desired “exporter step” ( using the Step Manager) after the step that produced the results containing the items you want to export.

Thus, in the Step Manager right_click on the step, choose the sub-menu for the appropriate plugin, and in exporter category choose the wanted exporter format.

Example: exporters of Base Plugin:

Then a result configuration window appears to select the items you want to export.

Localization options

The icon !{width:24px}preferences- system.png! in main toolbar, provides access to general options. To date there are only one option available: the choice of the decimal separator (for import / export in text format):

  • En_US: point as decimal separator
  • Fr_FR: comma as decimal separator

This choice affects the decimal separator used in the ASCII export of certain Exporters.
