Documentation / Export

You can export ReqView documents to HTML files for browsing, sharing, printing, conversion to PDF, or importing to a text processor.

Export HTML Files

To export a HTML file, click File, mouseover Export and click HTML File. In the Export HTML dialog, choose exported documents and other options. After confirmation of the dialog, select a destination for storing the exported HTML file and external attachments.

Note: In the WebApp, the exported HTML is saved in the browser download folder and the WebApp does not export attachment files.

Export Options

Documents:

  • Current document — export the current document only
  • Open documents — export all open documents from the main project or loaded linked projects
  • All documents from the main project — export all documents from the main project
  • All documents from loaded projects — export all documents from the main project or loaded linked projects

Layout:

  • Modern Report — export an interactive HTML file with default styles and a table displaying the same columns as the table view
  • Book — export a filtered HTML file with content in a single column, where the displayed table view columns are stacked as paragraphs
  • Table — export a filtered HTML file with a table displaying the same columns as the table view

Options:

  • Export into a single file — if set then all exported documents will be merged into a single HTML file, otherwise a separate file will be created for each exported document (for Open documents and All documents options)
  • Export displayed custom attributes in a single column — if set then columns displaying custom attributes will be compacted into a single column (for Modern Report and Table layouts)
  • Preserve filter and sorting — if set then exported data will be filtered and sorted the same way as the table view
