One of the commands in the Save menu.
You can choose this command after selecting one or more objects.
The Object window will ask you for a file name. After you click OK, the objects will be written to a text file on disk.
The format is much shorter than the one described at Save as text file.... Most of the comments are gone, and there is normally one piece of data per line.
The file can be read again with the all-purpose Read from file....
