What exact program are you trying to "Save as " a text document?

If you right click on an empty space on the desktop - select "New" and then find "Text Document" you will be able to save a file as a text document.

Saving a file as .txt does not mean it will be saved as a text file. We need to know what program is being used. If there is no "Save As..." or "Export" option, another may be to print to a text file.
