# org-mode how to export raw text no formatting?

Any quick way to export an org-mode document into a text file with no formatting and no org markup characters?

I am aware of C-c C-e [t] Export to Plain Text unfortunatly those options add formatting to the document

Header 1
═══════════════════════════════════

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do
eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

The format I'm looking for is:

Header 1

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do
eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

• What do you want to export exactly? org-mode documents are saved as raw text, if you open them up in another editor that's exactly what you'll see. In emacs, M-x text-mode or even M-x fundamental-mode will remove all syntax-highlighting and show you the raw text. – Tyler Feb 3 '17 at 22:10
• I want to export all the text without any of the org-mode formatting characters. – kevzettler Feb 3 '17 at 22:26
• I usually put the text in #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE and #+END_EXAMPLE block for no org-mode interference. – Emacs User Feb 3 '17 at 22:47

You could try pandoc, e.g. with ox-pandoc. The command line would be like this:

pandoc -t plain -o outfile.txt YOUR_ORG_FILE.org


The output is:

HEADER 1

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod
tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
