The Export to Folder > Flat function works exactly the same as the hierarchical folder export.
Export to Folder > Flat should put everything in the same folder (and rename the notes to the applicable thought name).

Great, maybe sorting this can replace the feature requested here: http://forums.thebrain.com/post/Export-to-single-folder-4669077.

Agreed. Am I misunderstanding the flat folder export? I thought everything went into one folder, but maybe I'm mistaken?

Right Zen. Even us old timers are not infullable!

The flat and hierarchical export functions ARE working correctly and are not identical in function.

If you select an active thought, with a couple of parents, a couple of children and then expand plex and select some grand children (even grand parents) and then export hierarchically, you will see the embedded folders corresponding to the child/parent relationships. If you export flat, you see all those folders at the root folder chosen at export. Both functions are working correctly.

My feature request for 'Export to Single' folder might be more akin to what you are also requesting, which is to dump the whole kiboodle of contents into one folder. On occasion there is purpose in having all the content selected exported to one directory without subfolders.
