You can open csv and save as txt, or you can just change csv to txt, it will be opened at text editor

@jjephtah, Please explain what you want to do with the file and why it would affect the file that you send to JLCPCB. Can you not take a copy of the file, send the original to JLCPCB and do whatever you want only with the copy?

@andyfierman i am only asking, hope changing the extention from .text to .csv will not in anyway modify the content of the file.

EasyEDA exports BOM  and Pick and Place files with a .csv suffix. You can open this to read direct;y in any spreadsheet program such as LibreOffice Calc, Gnumeric, Google Sheets or Excel. You can also open it directly (Drag and Drop or Open with...) in any text editor such as Xed or Notepad. If you change the .csv suffix to .txt then if you double click on the file it will open in your favourite text editor. Changing the file suffix has no effect on the file contents. It only changes which program the file opens with when you double click on it and therefore how it appears.

@andyfierman  Thanks i sincerely appreciate, the question probably sounds a little dumb, but my main reason for asking was that after changing the extension and uploading to JLCPCB, on the preview window, the components did not just change orientation (which can be overlooked) but it change position entirely from one side of the board to the other

@jjephtah, "...after changing the extension and uploading to JLCPCB, on the preview window, the components did not just change orientation (which can be overlooked) but it change position entirely from one side of the board to the other" It would have been helpful if you had described this in your original post to this Bug Report. * Why did you change the file suffix when submitting to JLCPCB? * Are you sure you have done **nothing** else to the file except change the filename suffix? * Did you open and then save it in a different program? As I said: "Changing the file suffix has no effect on the file contents. It only changes which program the file opens with when you double click on it and therefore how it appears." So maybe it should not come as a surprise that the viewer presents the file contents differently if the filename suffix is changed from what it is expecting. If you _really_ have not changed the file in _any way_ other than by changing the filename suffix then there would appear to be an issue for JLCPCB to fix in their preview window. It should either warn the user and reject files with any filename suffix other than .csv or should ignore the filename suffix and open them consistently based on their contents.

@andyfierman "Why did you change the file suffix when submitting to JLCPCB?" I changed the suffix because easyeda was exporting the BOM and pickandplace file in .txt instead of .csv "Are you sure you have done **nothing** else to the file except change the filename suffix?" I have done nothing else to the file except changing the suffix "Did you open and then save it in a different program?" nope all i did is change the suffix an it automatically open in excel spreadsheet

"I changed the suffix because easyeda was exporting the BOM and pickandplace file in .txt instead of .csv" I don't understand how that can happen. AFAIK, there are no options to export a BOM or Pick and Place file in any other format than as described in: [https://docs.easyeda.com/en/Schematic/Export-BOM/index.html](https://docs.easyeda.com/en/Schematic/Export-BOM/index.html) - - - **Notice:** * If your project has schematic and PCB, the BOM data will come from schematic; if the project only has PCB, the BOM data will come from PCB. * In order to support multiple languages, BOM and coordinate files (CSV file) are UNICODE encoded and tab-based. If the CSV file cannot be read by your components vendor or PCB manufacturer, please convert the encoding and change the delimiter. * Recommended solution: Save as a new CSV file in Excel or WPS. For example, open a CSV file in Excel, click or select: Save As - Other Formats - CSV (Comma Separated) (*. csv). You can also open the CSV file with any text editor (such as Windows Notepad) and save as ANSI or UTF-8 encoding. If necessary, replace all tabs with commas. - - - and all BOM or Pick and Place files are exported with a .csv suffix.
