XML Edit List

Like the Edit List, the XML edit list generates a list of events in play order, but in an XML structure. The XML edit list is generally used for transferring timeline information from timeline to timeline. However, since it is common file structure, it can be used in hundreds of ways.

To export an XML edit list, open a Timeline with coded data and choose File > Export > XML Edit list. The file will contain all the descriptions of the instances including: start and end times, row names and colors, label groupings, labels, and instance notes. A file will look this in a simple test editor.

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.
