The export is simple to perform. Open a timeline and choose File > Export > Edit list. The file that is exported will likely have an excel icon and can be opened by Excel immediately. Since this is a tab delimited file, it can also be opened by many simple text editors or can be used as a data source for other workflows.
For more information, see the Import section of this manual. There is a more in depth explanation of the data structure of the file. Also, see the Export Preferences section, this file type can be exported during capture and coding.
