Hm does this have anything to do with the error that is supposedly resolved in 5.02 and 5.03 update?

but pppfff now I'm all deflated. My ****major**** project has a serious wrench thrown in now.
Olav can be fixed soon? Please? 5.04 update in 2 weeks? :-D haha
As a workaround, you can duplicate the selection to a new document, then make the page size the same size as the selection, then export from that page (and then close the document without saving). Not ideal, but it'll work.
>You can only export whole pages; exporting selections has been broken since
I just ran into this, and I'm a bit confused.
In my testing, it appears that a page item cannot be exported to most of the export formats in that trying to do so will result in the entire page (or possibly it's the spread) being exported. However, I am able to export a JPEG of a single page item, though setting the JPEG Export Preferences of the application seems to have no effect on the rendered JPEG which is always at 72 ppi and of a quality less than maximum as reported by the OP.
Are these two separate bugs? Is there no way to get the JPEG preferences to "stick"?
It was confirmed to me by another official Adobe engineer/rep that it is a known bug. Yes trying to export a selection as JPEG defaults the image to 72 dpi no matter what you try.
Exporting the entire page as JPEG will respect the settings you tell ID to use.
I don't think that you can export "selection" as a PDF, nor was it ever designed to work that way. I would not consider that a bug.
FWIW, I ended up going with a duplicate-to-new-page workflow anyways; as we needed to do some other things on the objects when exporting that required some item padding and adding default frames around each image.
"FWIW, I ended up going with a duplicate-to-new-page workflow anyways;"
I have found Indesign snippets quite usefull to work in such scenario.
Thanks for the confirmation.

Well, the documentation says the command supports supports page items, and doing it in a script does not result in an error. When you export a page item to JPEG you get an image of that page item only. What makes you think the behavior when exporting to PDF should be different?
Either the documentation and script interpreter should reject such an attempt, or it should do the implied thing. Either way, it seems to me to be a bug.
