Default export list from project bay?

i have a large project that uses many sources i need to provide attribution for. i've made a duplicate of the project file and used the project bay to cull the materials down to just those items requiring attribution. is there a way to print this as a list? csv? pdf? would be very handy to be able to take that list to other places to do things like get the full titles for the sources rather than just the file names. how does anyone else handle this kind of thing?

thanks,
BabaG

The project bay files can be opened as regular text files. They are located in Reaper resource path, ProjectBays folder. However, some kind of a script would be needed to cull only the necessary information from them and arrange it to a nice list.

I think there have been similar things made for the project files, items etc. Maybe a request for the script forum?

thanks, x. that sounds really promising. i'm running v5.21 portable install, though, and can't seem to find a 'projectbays folder' anyplace. any more info on that?

thanks again,
BabaG

Look into Options menu, Show Reaper resource path in explorer/finder. From there the folder ProjectBays.

Wups, have you actually saved any project bay yet? I think the folder is created when you do that the first time...lemme check.

edit: yep, you have to first save a project bay, then the folder will also appear.
