1) Export – If you are inside a folder, export will only show things from inside that folder…you then can pick what from inside the folder to export. Additionally, when exporting, you have the option of maintaining a sub-folder structure, or flattening the exported list.

 

2) Import – if you are inside a folder, you are importing into that folder. After selecting a file (that you generated by doing an export), you can still pick what from that file to import

 

The feature Import/Export JSON in plain text, so if you are careful, you could write your own files to import.
