Unable to export QuickAction XML

I have created a custom action on a custom object that launches a Visualforce page.  It works great, but I am unable to export the XML behind the action.  In Eclipse if I Add/Remove metadata components it is in the list, but when I select it nothing exports.  I have also tried using the ANT tools and did a bulk retrieve by type "QuickAction" and while it is in the list of records to export I see this message:

[sf:bulkRetrieve] package.xml - Entity of type 'QuickAction' named 'ImagesPage' cannot be found

Are there any tips to getting actions pointed to Visualforce pages to export?  I need to update our source repository with the XML in order to propogate the change from one DE to another.

Thanks,
Ross

Hi Ross,

have you solved this problem?

I am having the same problem, not being able to retrieve a QuickAction xml via salesforce-ant

Thanks

Kind regards.-

I found the root of the problem, and it happens that the metadata api is not returning the Object name before the action name.
See this topic, I have posted an answer explaning the problem in detail ....

is like returning the field name without saying which is the object.
