It is my understanding that the "export" permission is an extra option allowing other people's full perm items to be full TOS like the Linda Kelle stuff is (Do what you want with it) rather than limited full-perm (Mod it, Copy it, share it but you may not HAVE it. Keep it on this grid only).
Mod/Copy/Trans - viewer refuses to export.
Mod/Copy/Trans/Export viewer accepts the export function.
E is useless without M/C/T to go along with it.
This is my understanding of the "E" flag.
I myself and looking forwards to this. I have spent YEARS telling my viewer "The creator told me I could cross-grid it and gave me a sworn document signed in blood. SHE TOLD ME IT'S OK!!!" but the viewer refuses to export the object. Now creators can tell the viewer it's OK (as long as M/C/T is also set).
And how on earth do we creators say it's NOT ok to export our builds to any other grid BY DEFAULT. At this moment, in ANY viewer, I see only 3 perms for any object (M-C-T). Where do we, or will we have to (if we have to) set the E on yes/no or simply ignore it if NO? In other terms will NO be the default
unless we say different for a particular build of our choice?
I'm a bit lost. Don't want to find out the Viewer 3 will let people export by default if we don't say big no. Maybe I missed a discusion on this earlier?
