I have a simple CSV of {lat,lon,text} and I want to export it as a WGS84 Shapefile.

How can I achieve this?

    I can't "comment" here yet, but have you tried what's discussed here? Made sure you're out of any "edit mode" etc.?

    I have suggested that it is the duplicate of different question but reading both gis.stackexchange.com/questions/136838/… and gis.stackexchange.com/questions/158985/… and this question again it is in my point of view not duplicate of any of these two. The first one is pretty close but it is missing the information on how to load csv including geometry into QGIS.
