Cannot export (or share) my watchlist

Unlike all my other lists, including "my ratings", the watchlist is NOT exportable. I am not sure if it is a bug or a lack of the feature itself.

The share icon in the list seems unfunctional; nothing happens when I toggle it.

Meanwhile in the other lists it is just straightforward, click on the three dots, export, done:

@argman For the non-functioning share menu, please see  https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/common-issues/why-is-imdb-displaying-differently-on-my-browser/GF2ZAR69V859XLHF 

However, in this case, the export function is not in the share menu anyway.  To export your watchlist, see the link "Export this list" at the bottom of the watchlist page:

The current inconsistencies between lists / ratings / watchlist will be eliminated when all of these pages are migrated to the latest IMDb design and technology.

Hope this helps.

Cool, will try that.

I just hope the new design doesn't remove this feature?

Because in the user rating page, many features and important stats (like rating by categories such as gender and age and the 1000 top voters) were totally removed. I hate when that happens, IMDb is all about database, and removing data isn't fit with the motif.
