so, after it is generally agreed that this indeed is a helpful feature:
I do not have currently plans to implement this.
even my implementation of the importAPR extension is only a
coarse demo that needs to be completeted to get the best
An export would be more complicated because I can not
ignore various information like for the import. A consistent
apr-file needs to be written and actually only ESRI knows
what consistent means.
Of course the file format can be reverse engineered.
It might even be possible to implement a method that, after loading
an apr-file, transscribes all changed made in Thuban to the apr-data and then
saves them alltogether with those information that were no understood
However, the efford for all of this will not be low.
I estimate 1-2 weeks for a basic APR-Export. About 4 weeks
to make it use really smooth. And about another 4 weeks
to implement this transscription feature.
