Quick export or preview of field

Right, I use those sophisticated features all the time and have probably hundreds of export templates scattered around in various DBs. Was looking for an on the fly field export, like the ready-made quick record export. Grab a record, grab a field, you pick 'em.

Yes, you are describing the Text Export Wizard. Open the Wizard, delete all the fields you don’t want to export, voila!
