Have some way of exporting/printing the Big Picture (i.e. all my tasks in all my projects)
When one is "on the road" and/or off-line (e.g. working on a train) it is deeply frustrating not to be able to do reflective thinking about one's priorities and projects. Partly an interim measure, I suggest we get to export a heirachical list of of all project and all tasks within them out to a .CSV file or even direct to a printer.
You can currently export the current project you are on (using the export button in the panel) and you can also export the entire outline. Just click the setting “cog” at the top right and choose export. The copy and paste the outline into your favorite offline app.
I know of some users who do this fairly often into Evernote, so they have an offline version for reference and backup.

Still needs work. Exporting the task list without the associated information (text, due dates, etc) really does not quite meet the needs. Exporting the whole thing to a csv (something-sv anyway) would meet the need I have for off site backup and manipulating with other programs. I've been burnt by providers that close up shop and take my data with them, too.

A really great function would simply be the ability to export tasks and their statuses as well as due dates (and planned start dates).
Hello. Is it possible when exporting to include the Completed Items but have them formatted in a way they are different than the open items? Either in itallics, or strikethrough or sometype of bracketing prefix/suffix?
When providing someone with an update/overview of a project it could be helpful to show all closed as well as open items.
Also, a Export To: option would be neat so we can send right to email or OneNote or Evernote or Word. Heck, even Excel could have some value.

You need to highlight the text you want to copy. Then right click on it and choose copy.. Or hit CTRL+C (on a PC) to copy that text. Sorry that should have been more clear!
1) hit export
2) go to edit menu (browser) -- hit copy
3) go into gmail (or word) and hit Paste --- but my list is not there ---
I'm sure I'm being stupid but I have no idea
