    Default saving a jTextPane input

        private void jMenuItem2ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {                                           
            // TODO add your handling code here:
     
            FileDialog nameBox;
            nameBox = new FileDialog(this, "Save Peptides",FileDialog.SAVE);
            nameBox.setVisible(true);
            String fileDirectory = nameBox.getDirectory();
            String savename = nameBox.getFile();
            savename = fileDirectory.concat(savename);
     
            JTextPane in = jTextPane3; 
            try (PrintWriter pWriter = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter(savename))) {
                pWriter.println(in);
            } catch (IOException ex) {
                Logger.getLogger(VeiwJFrame.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
            }
     
     
        }

    Read the API doc to see if the class has methods that will return the data that you want.
    What you posted looks like the String that is returned by the toString() method.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Then save JTextPane.getText() rather than the specifics of the JTextPane itself.
