Export labels?

Post by Rhod » 17 Jul 20 13:55

Hi - I've decided it's time to get to grips properly with my labels. Is it possible to export the entire 'tree' of labels so that they can be edited/tidied up in, say, Excel, and then re-imported into PSu? I remember doing this in Lightroom years ago but not sure if it's possible in PSu.
Thanks
Rhod

You can export to the Formatted Vocabulary format. Check the Data menu in the main hamburger menu.

Hi and thanks Hert - ok, I've done that successfully and opened in Excel. I can see that the option to 'Import Formatted Vocabulary File' is also there in the hamburger menu. What format should I save it in when I finish editing in Excel? Presumably 'Tab delimited text' format? There doesn't seem to be an option to save it as a UTF8 file, though UTF16 is there. Also, will it replace the existing (which is what I want) or merge the two?
Thanks for your help

Save it to the same format that it comes in. Text that is. Use a simple text editor to edit the text. Don't let Excel transform the format in any way.

After completion, start with a new catalog and import the file
