I'm running Multiterm 2007 on Windows 7. (I've also tried it on my machine that still runs XP, with the same result).

I'm able to choose Export Entries, choose the Word option, export and save my file, but when I open it, instead of having each field in the entry on its own line, everything is just run togather in one big paragraph.

Also, my English definitions are missing entirely, and the actual illustations have been replaced by just the file name.

For example

Russian сапёр SourceID Толковый словарь Ушакова PartOfSpeech Noun GrammaticalGender Masculine GrammaticalNumber Singular Definition Военнослужащий инженерных войск.

Context Если готовится оборона, то саперу незачем смотреть на местность противника, ему на своей местности работы достаточно, и чем глубже отходишь на свою территорию, тем работы для сапера больше и больше.
Note Ледокол, Виктор Суворов, М: АСТ 2007, с. 251.Graphic2 saper.jpg

I also learned how to export a dictionary in a class some years ago but the handouts don't mention any particular steps I'm missing.

Any suggestions appreciated...I'm a little abashed that I can't figure this out on my own.
