How to export captions to a TXT without timestamps

This used to happen automatically, but after the new update the .txt file is filled with timestamps. I need them the way they used to be, just the text. 

 

My old route was to click the 3 dots and select "Export to text File..." Is there a new way to get a txt without timestamps in it?

Yes, there were so many requests for adding timecode it changed. I don't think there is any caption export with no timecodes now. The workaround I see is not too painful, but only because they added export as csv. This  puts all the text in column 4. Just open in Excel or similar, copy that column, and paste into a text or word editor. You'll be good to go. Stan

Whew, that does add a bit to my personal workflow, but I can imagine the new functionality is great for most other video editors. Your solution does work though, thank you for suggesting it! 

(Note to others who do this, I had to copy-paste the text into a Word document after creating the Excel sheet, if you copy-paste the cells directly you get quotation marks around every cell)
