Why are my edits not being exported?

Full question: 
I am having trouble exporting saved changes that I have made within GenomeView. For example, I have an .embl file and I changed the coordinates for some genes. However, when export the data and try to re-open the file the changes have not been captured.

The export functionality exports the original data files and will never contain your changes.

You want to use 'save annotation', this will pop-out a new dialog that lets you pick a file and what exactly you want to save.
