Hi,
the wiki site you are referencing is outdated...

If you work with a daily, you can export to gcode only with the export button at the Path WB. ( I see at your pic you are not at path WB ;) )

1. Select the job you want to export
2. Click the Gcode Button at the Path WB (it's the secound button)
3. The UI to select the place you want to store should aper.

!! The Export via the menue don`t work since FC 0.17 !!


But: ATM there is a bug at the export: the menue don't aper sometimes. It*s fixed, but the fix is not commited atm, - at least not at the AppImage i use.

Hello Herbert!

Good observation :D I was not in the Path WB (tho it worked till now if I selected and then export)
Imho it should be working as I tried (menu - export).
Would be nice if right click menu would also have export this job.

Thanks for the prompt response!
Really appreciated.
Keep it up and have a good day!
