    TextEdit doesn't allow files to be saved as TXT, also Apple has moved most of it's apps away from having a "Save As" function, rather they have "Duplicate" now. From what I see, the formats TextEdit can save in are as follows:

    .rtf
    .html
    .webarchive
    .odt
    .docx
    .xml
    .doc

    Would any of these work? Don't have access to Microsoft Word.

    The RTF format needs to be effectively converted to TXT, so that it does not contain all the extra information in it. To do this, you need to open TextEdit and do Format → Make Plain Text. See the update above for more information.

    TextEdit does allow for files to be saved as .txt, but you may need to hold down the "Option Key" for the menu to appear. Detailed instructions on how to save a file as TXT on TextEdit are available in our Character Encoding article.
