If you want to get very geeky, this lua script creates a tab separated file of cue data for cue lists or look pages (level data). See usage comments or hints in the macro editor.

I havn't managed to get an ouptup from this yet.

I've put the code into a variable and tested it. It does'nt give any errors but i cant find the output file. I'm very curious how this works.

Don't put the code in a variable. Save the lua file in your show file Directory then re-load your show. At the bottom of the macro script editor, you will see:
CreateFile("file path") -- Use double backslashes in path')
WriteCues("Cue List Name")
WriteLooks("Look Page Name")

Once during you show do a CreateFile("d:\\test.txt")
Then do an WriteCues("Main Cue List")

Then go check out d:\text.txt
