«Exports a list of objects contained in an outline
on exportFromOutline (adroutline, folder)
«adrOutline is the address of a Frontier outline object
«make it the target, assume the cursor is on a line that contains several subheads
«each subhead contains the address of an object that we want to export
«folder is the folder that will contain the exported objects
«I keep my export list as a suboutline in my Notepad.
«I also keep change notes under the items, so the outline serves a dual purpose.
