SIMPLE FEATURE REQUEST: Export "selection" should enable "selection" if you have more than one object selected.
Often I create drawings in Draw and then using it in on my web site. However, sometimes I forgot to click "selection" and complete A4 page is exported as PNG.
LibreOffice should remember that I used "Selection" option in Export dialog or figure out it by itself if one or more objects are selected?
Operating System: All
Version: 22.214.171.124 release
enhancement request. set version to 3.3.0 since LibO never had this feature.
Please double check with a fresh release. Without any selection the respective checkbox is disabled in LibO fresh, having something selected enables and ticks the checkbox.

Could you please be more specific? The screenshot was made with v5.2 on Windows where "[ ] Selection" is always enabled and unchecked. But as I said, it works as expected under Linux with LibO Fresh.

This is enhancement, not bug. I guess we didn't understand each other. My idea was following: when you select more than one object on any page and decide to go to "Export", option "Selection" should be checked ([x]).

And that's exactly how it works on Linux with LibO Fresh. CC'ing Jay, please double check.
@Heiko: I have the selection checkbox enabled an unchecked on both platforms whether something is selected or not.
I would say that it shouldnt automatically check the selection checkbox, whether one or more objects are selected, because it would negatively impact a user who had something selected and wanted to export the entire document.
The better option would be for the dialog to remember that a user has checked/unchecked the checkbox previously and remember that for further usage of the dialog and the selection checkbox should be disabled if nothing is selected before opening the dialog.
There are other bug reports also requesting that these open/save dialogs remember other settings (e.g. bug 98728).
