Hi @Mageshwaran 

 

You can use below function on desktop version.

export_powerMath();

function export_powerMath() {
    var doc = app.documents[0];
    for (var i = 0; i < doc.stories.length; i++) {
        try {
            app.select(doc.stories[i].texts[0]);
            app.menuActions.itemByID(471686).invoke();
        } catch (e) {
            alert("PowerMath Plug-in not installed in this machine.\ror\rMenu action ID not found.");
            exit(0);
        }
    }
}

Is that plug-in scriptable? You can ask its author if it is and if it is, ask them for a manual.
