Libreoffice "export as PDF" filter includes a "selection" option to export only the objects that are currently selected.
Unfortunately, even in this case, LibO creates a PDF whose bounding box is as large as the whole page. For this usage case it would be much more useful to create a PDF whose bounding box is tight around the selected objects being exported (or to have an option to enable this behavior).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a small drawing on some standard paper size
2. Select it
3. Export as PDF with export "selection" only
See that the PDF page is as large as the paper size
The PDF bounding box should better fit tightly the selection being exported as PDF.

I can't decide if I should accept this, so let's phone the UX philosophers. It's always a good idea to involve them whenever there is a suggestion "to have an option".
Yep, valid, but a long recognized issue, to => DUP
The pdfio filter needs to be tweaked.
