Search-based export

We can get search results based on multiple properties but generally have to manually perform export operations opening document content one by one. Would be a big time saver if we could directly select document to search in, and define export formats for the entities matching search conditions and as result get "Export" folder inside the document with subfolders matching searches applied and with "update export" and "edit search" context menu options.

    Nice idea anything that make exporting less time consuming would be good.

    @konstantin_shiriazdanov For now this is going to need a number of things to be implemented before something like this could be done.  You can do something like this today with the API but first we would need to set defaults per element type and do bulk export operations.  Once these exist, this would be easy to implement.  For now I will move this for more feedback here while the other requirements are added. ~Lou
