How to create a .TXT file with new n8n version?

Describe the problem/error/question

With the new n8n version, I am trying to export the JSON data from one node to an external .TXT file.

Searched on the internet and saw people are using the block “Convert to Binary” but it seems that is not available in this new version.

What could be the other way to export my JSON data to a .TXT file?

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 1.25.1
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): Docker
  • Operating system: Debian

Hey @Auto.Matron,

Convert to Binary is now called Convert to File but we never really had an option to create a normal txt file but you could use it to create a csv file that you could load with a text editor.

If you did want a txt file depending on the data format you could use an execute command node and direct the output to a file.
