The calculated export folder/filename path for the note (read-only)

The folders and file from export root that would be created if the file were exported at that time. It thus show the names of the folders & file with any characters omitted or substituted as part of the export process.

This can be extremely useful in more complex export scenarios where there is a need to reference in code an exported note's OS filename or path without being forced to hard-set $HTMLExportFileName. If not set, the latter cannot be queried within Tinderbox.

To get just the exported filename from the path:

$MyString = $HTMLExportPath.split("/").at(-1) 

For this note:

$Path = "/A Tinderbox Reference File/Attributes/System Attribute List/HTMLExportPath"

$HTMLExportPath = "/index/Attributes/SystemAttributeList/HTMLExportPath.html"

Note the spaces being lost in the latter. The export version will also show $HTMLExportFileNameSpacer changes, if the latter is set.
