Actually this issue turned out to be a lesser problem than I expected. Copy and paste from CT’s view window (as opposed to the edit window) straight into Word works reasonably well. Although the formatting, headings and bullet points are lost, I can live with that. Though I imagine if one had hundreds of topics, then a straightforward export into RTF (a la Scrivener) would be much preferable.
