Default Export Selection Markers?

Is there a way to export selection markers to a text file from Pro Tools?

I found a way to export session info but it seems like it only exports regular markers with IN time, not selection markers. I need both IN and OUT times exported, which the selection markers have.

Thank you!

I don't know if this will do selections, but it's what we used to use before Pro Tools included markers in session info: http://www.soundsinsync.com/products/edimarker

Thank you! I tried it but it seems like it ignores selection markers completely. And normal markers only IN time.

Any other ideas? I know that some other native apps can interact and fetch timecodes from PT so you'd think it should be possible somehow.

A workaround :
create an audio track, maybe named "Selections"
select the first selection marker , create an audio-group in the new audio track via Ctrl+Alt+G (Cmd+Alt+G)(creates am empty but visible clip over the duration of the selection in the new track)
as above for all other selections
export as text file
