Too many Vertices to copy?

I have a tracklog of a ship i was working on. The data was recorded live into GM via NMEA string. I now want to export this nav data. I can view the vertices and see they have time, elevation, speed, heading attributes that i want.. but when i click 'copy to clipboard' button i get a message saying 'too much data to copy'. (50,000+ vertices)

How can i export the Vertices and retain all the attributes. When i 'export vector format', it just gives me x,y and zed if i'm lucky.

There must be another way other than 'copy to clipboard', what is this, office95!?

    What version of Global Mapper are you using? The latest releases have a fail-safe for large copies to the clipboard that prompts you to save to a text file when the data is too much to copy to the clipboard and just paste somewhere else. That didn't exist until v13.2 though I don't think.

    Hi, thanks for the tip. Am currently using v13. I'll have to look into getting the upgrade as i need that save to text option!
    A workaround for this problem is to copy all that the clipboard will take - paste them somewhere (excel) - then delete the vertices from GM you just saved - copy the next clipboard full - paste to excel - repeat as necessary. Only problem is you end up deleting your raw data.

    If you get the new version with the file save option then at least for each of those you could have a separate file. The normal exports don't save those extra parameters as they aren't raw attributes of the data but are all calculated based on the XYZ+time, although I can see how it wouldn't be trivial to generate those in Excel or something.
