This is a bug, we will fix it.

get the text of btn "File"
put return & "Save as Text File..." after line -2 of it
set the text of btn "File" to it

Or run (in the Message Box):

select btn "file"

Then go to object properties and edit the text content using the last tab.

Or select the menu group then edit it, then select the button.

Kind regards,
