  1. Click on the “Content Models” icon on the left navigation panel and select the Global Fields option.

  2. Hover over the Global field that you want to export, click on the “Export” icon (three vertical dots) on the extreme right-hand side, and select Export Global Field.export_a_global_field_1_highlighted.png
