Export observing lists

Its on the Observing List menu of the Nightly Planner. Select the Export Observing List menu item.

Regarding logs, it's simply not technically simple to support import/export via the open astronomy log "standard" the way it was written. The people who wrote it were not primarily astronomers. In the end, it only works well for more limited software. As an example, given the large numbers of catalog cross references that SkyTools supports, it would be very painful and time consuming to attempt to import/export objects formatted with designations they way they want. It could take me months. And in the end, there is no way to make certain that the object you log on one app will be the same one you get in another. To me that is a deal breaker. The primary developer did not think it mattered. Given all this, and with cheap Windows tablets available that work great in the field, I naturally support using my own product rather than someone else's. I would rather put my efforts into making you no longer want to use other products. I hope that you will find that SkyTools 4 may make you no longer wish to use your phone or iPad or whatever you are using.

Greg - thanks for the fast response!  Yeah, I get that it would be a big job and I get that there are competing priorities in product development.  
Last I looked, the tablets were still pretty expensive and I already have a phone and an (old) ipad. But I'll have to take another look.  Anyway, good to know I can export lists.  I just assumed the export would be on one of the data tabs along with share, backup etc.  Never occurred to me to look on the list itself.  Thanks!

Look forward to seeing ST 4 Visual.  (Not doing any imaging yet -unless you consider using the Revolution Imager imaging, but I suspect  AP people don't.....   )
