A dialog opens and you can select the entries you want to export. E.g., if you selected “S” previously, only the entries beginning with S are displayed and you can export them by selecting the exporting method Export entries with the selected initial. It is also possible to export the whole dictionary, the chosen category (e.g. Organization Units like in the example) or, if the search field was used previously, only those entries that were found. In case you have multi-language support activated for your workspace, you need to select the language you want to export. In case you want to export several languages, you need to execute the export several times.
