Thanks Fred for the explanation. But all is not well...

I had two BaseMode files - one in !StrongED and one in !StrED_Cfg. The
later was dated 17 Nov 2017 and did not contain the line in question. I
can't recall where this came from so have moved this BaseMode entirely out
of !StrED_Cfg and restarted.

The one in !StrongED contains, on Logical Line 579:
  c-Select	SetTmp() ExportText() Run("Run

Yet even after a reset I still get the same error - "File name
'.ExportSED' not recognised"

The only thing that is unusual in my setup is that I installed modes only
in !StrED_Cfg. !StrongED 4.70a12 (23-Apr-2017) is untouched.

So I  am still baffled....
