Change delimiter for CSV export?

Steve Mawer (1622) | asked Sep 03 '13, 4:43 a.m.
How can I extend the rather limited choice of delimiters for export to CSV?  The only halfway sensible one is caret, but that's a"start of line" in regular expressions.  I want to use a vertical bar (|), is there any way I can do that?

 Hello Steve,
as you noticed, CSV export delimiters is a fixed array.
You can not specify a custom delimiter at export time.
But you can set any delimiter at import time.

Changing this behavior would require to "hack" the Eclipse Client's code,
which is not advisable and would lead to  unsupported configuration.

You may open a new enhancement (none found on to further specify your request.

Hope it helps.
