Exporting "list view" metadata from Aperture 3?

    I have lots of wonderfully useful metadata visible to me in List View, such as Pixel Size, Lens, and all that jazz. Groovy! But, I'd like to be able to export all that for handy reference on my iPad - and that's where it all starts getting awkward. There is the "export metadata" function, but that appears to only work with the IPTC Core fields, with no configurability.

    I can't seem to find anything that permits simply exporting what I see in List View, (possibly) short of learning AppleScript. Have I just overlooked the obvious? Or, if it *is* a matter of scripting, maybe such a utility already exists?

    You can create all kinds of metadata views and presets of metadata by following process at: http://theapertureblog.com/2014/04/02/create-a-metadata-preset-to-view-all-metadata/

    Aperture allows a user to share those presets with others by creating a export preset file. See page 211 of the Aperture 3.5 user guide.

    Hope this helps.
