tag names listed when exporting multiple documents

I realise I can include document names when I export multiple documents as text, rtf, etc. (Something I’ve only just discovered much to my embarrassment.) What I would find particularly useful would be a similar option in the export dialogue box to also list the names of tags associated with each document.

I managed to modify one of Christian’s scripts to do more or less what I wanted. My scripting skills are limited. Suggested improvements welcome.

– Create listing of the selected items instead of all items in a database

tell application id “com.devon-technologies.thinkpro2”
if not (exists current database) then error “No database is open.”
set theDatabase to the current database
set theSelection to the selection
if theSelection is {} then error “Please select some items.”
set theFile to choose file name default name ((name of theDatabase) as string) & “.txt”

	show progress indicator "Creating Listing..."
	--set theListing to my createListing(children of root of theDatabase, "")
	set theListing to my createListing(theSelection)
	set thePath to POSIX path of theFile
	if thePath does not end with ".txt" then set thePath to thePath & ".txt"
	set writeFile to open for access (thePath as POSIX file) with write permission
	set eof writeFile to 0
	write theListing to writeFile
	close access writeFile
	hide progress indicator
on error error_message number error_number
	hide progress indicator
	if the error_number is not -128 then display alert "DEVONthink Pro" message error_message as warning
end try
