Bring back ability to save search results
Older versions of DW had the ability to save the results from a search into XML format. That ability was extremely helpful - the only option right now is to take a screenshot of the list, then retype them into a usable format. Please, please, please bring the "save" feature back - it was a huge help and time-saver!
This is implemented and will be available in the upcoming release.
DW 2020 - Still can't save search results as csv ot tab delimited. Please, please bring back!!!
Where can I find this option? I see that you can save queries but I want to be able to save results or copy the names of the files that are listed.
what release and when will this be reinstated? I agree on the usefulness of this ability.

I started the thread in discussions (https://forums.adobe.com/message/10207250#10207250).
At present, I have to use Sublime for this feature.
Someone else has commented that it would be good if we could also export to a different format too; css perhaps.

Something that's being misunderstood about this issue is that I'm not looking for the ability to save search queries. That isn't helpful to me. I need to be able to export search results to plain text that can be sorted. Many people have this need but I'm seeing in forums that the Adobe folks are pointing us to the regedit instructions for "ShowHiddenOptions." That fixes a separate issue. Just wanted to make this distinction. Thanks.

Hi there, I need the export results functionality to sort thousands of results across a massive site. It wouldn't be practical for me to take screenshots. I've tried the grep command but it doesn't allow non-alphabetic characters. My next resort is using Sublime Text as I've heard this is what others resort to. I'm adding my voice here to support the case for bringing this feature back with the added bonus of getting the results in CSV.

I've test this in Dw CC 2018 and it works...
Happy Saving and Loading Queries!
