Can I create a path and export the Lat/Lon series as a text file?

I am in need of path information in the form of a series of Lat/Lon coordinates. I need to know whether I can create a text file of such information that I have selected (potentially a thousand points of so) using Google Earth Pro. I used to do this with the Google Earth free app via the .kml, but the .kml files are now in a non-text format. I am wondering whether Google Earth Pro will enable me to do this.

Hi.

Here's an online tool that you can select your KML and export into text, CSV, etc.

This is something I learned on my own. If you create a path, it shows up under places on the left side of your screen. If you will select that path on the left side (mine highlights blue), perform a ctrl c to copy data to the clipboard, open excel or word or any text editor and perform a ctrl v to paste into the editor. All of the gps points from that route are now in the text editor. You will have to perform cleanup on the data, i.e. delete multiple lines of html (I think) that you don't need and separate the coordinates as needed, but all of the points are there. I sincerely hope this helps as it helped me numerous times.
