I do not see a confirmation notice when the download is completed

You will not see a confirmation notice as we are writing a download file and the
headers have already been sent. You will notice when you export from the WordPress
tools you will not see a confirmation notice. It is best to look at your browser’s
downloads progress information or look in your downloads folder on your computer.

Does what it says on the tin! A vital missing feature from WP.

I had about 10 posts I wanted to switch over from my old site to my new site. I installed this plugin and was able to simple check the specific 10 posts I wanted to export as an XML file and export them. I then used the WordPress importer on my other website and done… my posts had been moved. Very easy to use and does the job well.
