In the past I have used Export All -> Plain Text -> Ctrl+A -> Ctrl-C to first show all the contents of a node in the export window and then mark it all and copy it. Afterwards, I pasted it into a cell in Excel and it would populate the column below the cell with one item of the workflowy per row.
With the new design there are two problems:
a) When selecting plain text, the copied content ends up completely in the selected Excel cell, so no more one item per Excel row. So probably a change in how line endings are encoded.
b) If you click anywhere so that the text in the Export All window is deselected, a Ctrl+A actually highlights and selects the text showing in the Workflowy main windows (where nodes might be collapsed) instead of the Export All popup window, so Ctrl+C then copies the main window and without plain text formatting.
I have so far used this to make a daily dump of my Workflowy content to create statistics of progress in Excel and am completely stuck now until this is fixed. So please, please please look into this quickly
