Just select (or create) a different text export template.

As Mark points out, whilst the default built-in text export template ('outline') uses section numbering there are 2 other built-in choices on offer that don't. The important point is the numbering you see is created by code in the export template and not a setting in the TBX document or TB itself. But, if none of the defaults work for you....

The built-in templates are in the TB app package but to save you poking around their code contents are below. You can copy any of them and paste them either:
  • into a new note in your TB set to work as a template, and select that as the template.
  • make an external pain text file, paste in the code and link to it in the old TB manner.

The 'Outline' template code:
^indent^^sectionNumber^ ^title^
(don't forget to put a line return at the end of the line)

The 'Text' template code:
^text^
(don't forget to put a line return at the end of the line)

The '' template code:
^sectionNumber ^title
^text^

(don't forget to put a line return at the end of the last line)

Variations? To have the current outline without numbering, try:
^indent^^title^
(don't forget to put a line return at the end of the line)

See the manual and aTbRef for more on the various export codes and what they do.
