Monday, November 30, 2009 5:12 PMI recently upgraded to EW3 (with SP1) from EW2 and noticed that the file/ "export" function was missing. It is available in EW2 which I still have installed on my PC but does not appear in EW3. I have done two re-installs with no change. has anyone else experienced this issue? It should appear just above or below the file/import function unless I'm missing something. Any help would ne appreciated

If you mean the 'Export to Web Package' option, this is now under the Site Menu.

Monday, November 30, 2009 7:20 PMIan - Thanks. No not export Weg Package - I was referring to exporting a single file such as PDF or database from a website to a folder on my computer's hard drive. This is a simple function and has always been available in Frontpage, EW, EW2 but its not in my EW3 upgrade. The function always appeared under "file/export" however its not there? That's the issue. I have the option of right clicking on the specific file in the web site and then opening it in a default program such as Acrobat and then doing a "save as" and directing it to a folder on my hard drive, but this is time consuming and was always accomplished using the "file/export" funtion - whixh for me has vanished.

I noticed the missing File/Export as well. Although I don't use it often, I do use it. "Export to Web Package" is overkill when you just want to export one file (PDF, JPG, etc.). The documentation suggests it should be where I'm looking (File/Export).
Monday, November 30, 2009 9:38 PMWell, it's not there, although I agree that the Help documentation says it is.
But, why bother? Just use "File -> Save As". Seems to me that's the same as "File -> Export".

For now, copying/pasting or Save As... should handle most scenarios. For the scenarios where you really need that additional functionality, just keep Expression Web 2 around.

Just kidding, you're right. There's almost always another way to do something. My post was mostly intended to confirm the disappearance of File/Export for the person who brought it up.
