I installed the plugin and exported my Word Press page post. WHERE IS IT? I gave on trying to ask free support. It isn't possible. This should be a no brainer. Export the file, view the file. The application either didn't work or the file is exported off so some other location. . . either way, no good.

I use this on WordPress 5.7.2. and export all my texts because I usually write directly in the WP app or via the dashboard. Not tested with this version of WP but it definitely works like a charm <3

I use the plugin to export posts, filtered through another plugin, to a Word-file. I apply a custom set of styles then, which is possible because Aspose exports the styles along with the content. I might have to rearrange some pictures and I’m done. This is exactly what I was looking for.

We use it for a project and it works great. Also, the support response is very fast!
