Exhaustive (?) list of FLEx markers and fields that are supported by DAB

Hi there,

I once tested all the possible export/import options from FLEx to DAB and came up with a list of all markers that are supported. This is needed if you import a dictionary into FLEx in order to publish it later at DAB - you want to assign the correct FLEx fields to whatever other program you are converting from so you know that you can quickly create a DAB dictionary and all your entries will be there.

Since this was trial and error and a few years ago, I don’t claim that this list is exhaustive. However, it might save some people time. I’ll try to edit things according to your feedback.

Analysis stands for your Analysis language (e.g. Eng for English), Vernacular stands for your target language. First I give the FLEx marker that you get when you export and then what field in FLEx stands behind it. So the markers \co_Eng is being created during FLEx export/import if you have written something in the note field in the section before the first gloss.
