Good day all,

end preOpenCard

if the rtftext of field "editorfield" is gEditorField then
go to card "report"
exit uploadEditField
end if
put field "namefield" into tname
if tname is not in field "listfield" of card"report" then
put "üploading" into field "statusfield"of card "edit report"
put the rtftext of field "editorField"into URL ("file:C:\Users\Live code\Desktop\BPV\report\"& tname & ".rtf")

1. welcome to the forum! :D

2. Looks like you discovered a bug!
I also checked this and you are correct, there is a lot of text missing in the resulting file!

I created a bug report:

EDIT: It just has been confirmed as a bug!

I think you are making things very complicated.

Here is a stack that took me 5 minutes.
RTFX.png (8.05 KiB) Viewed 1013 times
with this script in the button "Export to RTF":

on mouseUp
set the useUnicode to true
ask file "Choose where you wish to export your text"
if the result = "cancel"
then exit mouseUp
put the RTFtext of fld "fff" into url("file:" & it & ".rtf")
get the longFilePath of it
set the itemDelimiter to slash
set the defaultFolder to item 1 to -2 of the longFilePath of it
end if
end mouseUp

I have attached the stack so you can play with it.
