Confirmed with Selection. Defining the slide works ok.

Not sure if "selection" in pdf export dialog means what you think. If you select an object in a slide and export as pdf choosing selection, then you get a pdf document containing only the object you selected. For me the choice "selection" is intended to work the same way it works for graphic export.
Does somebody can confirm or infirm my thought ?
Exporting a list of selected slides (choice #2) works well in LO 5.0 branch.
Best regards. JBF

Gosh, you are right! If I select an object before PDF export, the "Selection" export option correctly exports only the slide with the selected object.
Yet, that is highly unintuitive in the context! I think a use case of ctrl-clicking a selection of slides in the Slide Pane would be quite common.
Compare this to ctrl-clicking objects in multiple slides: it is impossible! So in effect selecting an object and exporting as PDF "Selection" is the same as saying you want to export a single slide with the object. It is redundant.
Yet another inconsistency: if we select an object, go to File - Export... tick selection in the file dialog and select PDF as the file type, the regular PDF export dialog appears. We then would have to again select "Selection", otherwise it produces a PDF with all the pages (the default option).
I download the last version 184.108.40.206 for Windows 7 Version 64.
Open Libreoffice impress
Create a doc with 3 slides
Select 2 slices
export all the doc not the selection.

In my tests, it export only the selected object, not the entire slide containing the selected object. Do you agree?
For the sake of clarity, I think the pdf export dialog should have two excluding selection choices :
1/ selected slides
2/ selected graphic object(s)
Note: when I try to export a selection of slides made in the slide sorter tab by choosing the radio button "selection", I get the following error message:
Error saving the document [...]:
The file could not be written.
No error message if I selected the slides in the slide sidebar.

No, I don't agree. It exports the entire slide for me, both in 4.4 and 5.1.
I've never seen the error you mention.
