Help creating a data dictionary from property tree
I'm trying to create a data dictionary on and Excel file (CSV) of all the properties of a class and everything that I want to save, I can get it from Designer Studio > Data model > Classes & Properties > Property Tree
The problem is that when I try to expand the columns, my web browser starts to use a lot of memory and in the end it crash. I tried to get the properties in small portions, but still it's impossible.
Is there a way to get the Property tree of a Class using other way? BIX could be an option, but I cannot download it.
Any help? I just want to export the property tree to a file. The problem is, it's too big to do it and crash the browser. Anyway, if somebody have an idea to export it, I'll appreciate it. Thanks a lot!

I'm not aware of an easy way to do this as a tree structure. You could definitely write a report (or make use of something OOTB) and export to excel. I'd look at how the instance lists are generated. You might be able to query the database directly as well, but you'd need to figure out the SQL to get you what you want.
My first try was to query the database to create the data dictionary, SQL developer has a tool for that. But as you said, the main problem is to figure out where is everything stored.
