Question about exporting a file behaviour

Joplin 2.8.8 (prod, linux)

When I am exporting a file as an html or markdown it creates a whole structure of folders which makes a strange mess of folders inside folders.
Is there no way to just get the one file saved without the folder structure?

Not really, you can do it via joplin data api (

well, I am not really a programmer so I don't think I can.
