It seems that during export, the library module will not let me browse through the other folders. It just keeps pushing my view to the folder where I am exporting to.
Can anyone help?
You would choose the photos to export by selecting them in a folder before opening the 'Export' module.
If you want to gather photos from several library folders, you can do it two ways-
1. Add the photos from any folders to a collection and export from there. Key-press 'B' will place selected photos in the "Target" collection.
2. Select multiple folders in the Folder panel- Hold Ctrl/Cmd as you click each folder to select them, then select photos to export.
If you are in the Export dialog- the destination folder is either 'Fixed' as per the "Export Location" panel, unless you have set -
[Export too: Choose folder later (useful for presets)]
