Save as: STL

So I had the 2019 version of Discovery Space Claim and the license expired, so I uninstalled it and downloaded the 2020 version. Every thing seemed to be peachy, but when I opened a spaceclaim file from my earlier version and made a few adjustments. I then went to Save As and saving it in an STL along with a lot of other file types I noticed are not there like the version before. Am I missing something or did I do something wrong when installing? Or maybe an option I have to change inbsome settings...Or is the new version not able to/ did they change the ability to save in STL. I honestly hope Im being dumb ?

    It's there in my version, about 8 up from the bottom.  Test with a simple model in case you've hit a surface or facet limit with the changes: Student does have a few differences from the commercial build relating to model size.

    The object I designed has about 34 faces, pretty simple and not complex. So I dont think that would be the issue. And it sounds like your software has the stl option like my old version used to. But now the list is missing most of the file type options including stl. There are only like 8 or so options on my list in the Save As ( mostly jpg, png, etc.) Nothing useful. I have never had the commercial, just went from 2019 version to the 2020
    Is there any other reasons why it wouldnt be showing all the file types including stl like it was before?

    Save as option only has these file types after changing to new version: Spaceclaim files, auto cad dwg, dfx, spaceclaim template, bitmap, gif, jpeg, png, tiff.

    I am having a similar issue.

    In my 'Save as type', I only have 'SpaceClaim files (*.scdoc)'. No any other choices.

    I hope I could save it to *.stl format.
