hmm.... i thought so guys, but for some strange reason when i export as obj, the output file properties says its extension is 'file' as opposed to obj file, now i have exported as obj before no probs, so when i try to import this obj back into any program it isnt recognised, any ideas?

Is the OBJ default file extension tick box checked in the options menu?
