Export paleo plate boundaries to shapefiles

Hi all, I was trying to export paleo-plate boundaries (Matthews et al GPC 2016 Mz-Cz PlateTopologies.gpmlz) to shapefiles so I can plot them in GIS. I chose Reconstructed Geometries (shapefiles) and export but no file was generated. I was able to export ContientalPolygons without a problem. I use GPlates 2.2. I am wondering if anyone can tell me how to export plate boundaries to shapefiles?



Hi Wenrong,

Is anything in the Matthews_etal_GPC_2016_MesozoicCenozoic_PlateTopologies sub-directory ?

…since the default options export each layer into a separate directory (although that would’ve been the same for your ContinentalPolygons) …
