What in the hell is Ventura 10, you ask? Well, I got it and have a big file that I need to export to a Word or rtf file.

Any ideas?

have you tried file > save as > microsoft word?

you can also turn it into a pdf, and then use acrobat to save the pdf as ms-word, but that doesn't fit your question of "easily"

Yea, save-as only saves as a Ventura file. Not even a .pdf.

well, look for File > save as rtf... i think that's all you want, if it's there and works, no screenshot required obviously :)

the guides i've seen out there reference that file menu option

it may be your only option in "file > save as"  but there should be a whole different menu link for "file > save as rtf"

Sorry for the delay. Here is the screenshot. Only one option: save as to a Ventura file.

I see.  Can you do a whole screenshot of the whole file menu, hit the double-down arrow at the bottom if there is one

Well, I finally got the complete book to a pdf. I want finally to convert it to an eBook. That's why I wanted to export it in the first place. Any ideas?

If you just wanted it to be a pdf, you could install cutepdf writer, then you can "print" to a pdf file.

Would still like to see the file menu tho

Okay, but I am operating remotely and it will take a few days to get back to you. A PDF was not my goal but it got me one step closer.

not a problem on the time, just want to get it figured out

i understand it's no an option in "save as" but i think there might be something useful on the File menu itself

Not exactly what I wanted to do, but I'll have to settle for a pdf. Now I'll have to look for a pdf to text converter.
