Grids can either be exported to .vexp files or to .vgrid files.


Exporting to a .vexp file


Press the More button and select Export. This will allow you to export either the selected grid(s) or all the grids to a .vexp file. This is usually done so  the grids can be copied by another user.


Once another user has imported the exported .vexp file, the imported gridlines will appear on their GridLines menu.



Exporting to a .vgrid file


Press the More button and select Export to .vgrid.


A Grid is exported to a .vgrid file so that it can be automatically loaded by V when a file is viewed.


The Set Export Data option in the Grid right-click menu is used to specify extra data that will be appended to every line in the exported .vgrid file.


You can also append different data for each line (column) by entering the extra data to be exported in the Column Length. Simply include the extra data immediately after the length.


For example, if you enter 16, A for the Column Length, ", A" (without the quotes) will be added to the corresponding exported line.


Note that the comma in this example does not act as a separator. The extra data to be exported begins at the first non-numeric character after the column length. If you add a space after the column length, the space will also be exported.




.vgrid files can only be exported/imported one at a time. Export to a .vexp file if you would like to export/import multiple grids.
