I have a very large TM, and I wish to export only the newest entries into a new TM.
Thanks to the help of Stepan Konev I was able to filter the large TM so that only the entries with my selected creation date were shown:
Thanks again, Stepan!

However, I failed in exporting these entries into a new TM.
In my first attempt, I created a new empty TM, and then I clicked on "Export" in the window that showed my selected entries. But the result was the message: "Export successful, 0 entries were exported". So I think maybe the entries must be marked somehow before exporting? But if so, then how?

In my second attempt I thought that maybe the solution is to first save the filter, then use the option "create a new TM based on ...", and then select the saved filter as basis to create the new TM from, but it seems that this option is not available.

So, I am at a complete loss here, and your help would be highly appreciated!

(I tried to find the answer in SDL's help files, but I find them very confusing to navigate. Same with the KB on SDL's website. I also did searches in the forums here and on SDL's website, als well as on Youtube and on the Internet in general, but I could not find the answer.)

Thank you!

Kind regards,
