Open MyHeritage - Then open the folder you are going to make a GEDCOM from. Then, at  the upper left corner look for "file"  This will be a pull down menu.  Then, click on Export GEDCOM file.  Follow the instructions.  Name the file and notice where it is stored.  When importing into WikiTree go to the upper right at Add +  then follow the instructions after clicking on GEDCOMs. Import the file with the name you made in MyHeritage.

There is also something on the wikitree gedcom help pages about splitting a gedcom from My Heritage if it is to big for WikiTree
Can you please advise where the "file" is located on the upper left corner?

I have MyHeritage family tree but canno locate "file"!!!!

Look for the word FILE at the left and click on it with your mouse.  This will open the drop down menu.  Then, look for Export GEDCOM, it should turn light blue when your curser lights it up, click, and follow through with the instructions given.

There is no FILE option on myheritage.
Steven, I changed the reply left above for Tim.  Removed the word "file" and cleared up the instructions.  Hope this makes it easer to follow.
I believe that the MyHeritage site has rearranged their links.

I found "Export GEDCOM", then went backwards to try and explain how I found it.

I will update when I manage to find it again.
Found it!

On MyHeritage.com, go to Family Tree, pulldown menu to Manage Trees, on the same line as your tree, follow to the right to Actions. In that list should be Export to GEDCOM.

Also in MyHeritage Help, type in "Export GEDCOM"

This instruction is/was valid in May 2019

Thank you for clearing that up.
