26 has the same export options as 25.  I don't recall there being a TXT format?  AAT is still there, as well as XML.  Just launched 21... the same:  XML or AAT - both of which are text.

 

What do you need TXT for Gary?

It is still there, but need to use the Attributes Manager... command rather than Attributes... command.

Thanks, @David Maudlin ... that button is so obvious I couldn't see it.   How strange that the export button at the top right does not offer TXT as an option...

It seems totally bizarre that we can't export to excel.

Does Windows Excel not let you open TXT files and choose how to read the data into columns?  This is part of what I see on Mac Excel when opening an exported list of Fills as TXT...
