Export path rules - how do they actually work?

OK, I give up! I cannot get my head around export path rules. I'm obviously doing something wrong because I keep getting the import path as the export path, which I guess is the default setting if the rule is corrupt.
I want to be able to import files from various source folders but I would like for all exported translated files to end up in the same folder, e.g. C:\[...]\My MemoQ Projects\Translated files.
How do I do it?

Hi Profdoc

As a starting point, you can use the following export rule:

(replace square bracket with angle brackets)

This will be identical to the import path, so before you export the files, make sure you change the name of the root folder containing the source files, if you do not want to overwrite them.

To update everything to a single folder, you will need to press the [...] button to the right of the "Rule" field in order to choose an export folder, then specify [OrigFileNameExt] as the rule. If you have unique file names, all files will be exported to that folder.
