What version of InDesign are you using? Did you select page item(s) as I described above with the Selection tool? Did you try restoring preferences as I described above?
But I don't want a frame.. I only want selected text and I can't select
text with the selection tool.. only with Text tool.. or am I doing
something very obviously wrong? So I am using the CC library but I prefer
to have the 'snippet' on our servers. Any thoughts? Thanks

That’s not how it works. You need to have an object or group of objects selected to export a snippet.
It has always worked this way.

Copy that paragraph and paste it to its own frame. Then select the frame with the one paragraph with the Selection tool and export the snippet. That’s the only way you can put one paragraph in a snippet on the server.
Yes - thanks. I will do that :-). It's so long since I created snippets
that I had forgotten!
