Not a problem

Dual Monitor Export DNG issue

Classic 7.3.1
Dual Monitor Setup
Grid on second monitor - select all photos then export to DNG only exports single image in primary monitor
Change Grid to primary monitor - select all, and it exports all photos selected...

anyone else get this?
certainly seems like a bug.

Hi Jacob,

I am not able to reproduce this issue on Win10.

Could you confirm your OS?
Also, could you confirm if you see "Export X Files", where X is the number of files selected, in the Export Dialog title? See below for 18 files


Thanks,

WIn 10 Pro 64bit.  fully upto date with latest patches/version.
Will try the export dialog tomorrow. 
Restarted lightroom a few times as well, in case it was just something off.

Most controls use the following principle: actions apply to the single active photo unless the Grid is displayed in the main preview area on the main Lightroom window. This is because Lightroom can't be sure of which screen you're looking at when you choose the command, so it has to pick one for consistency.

There are occasional exceptions to this rule, and Export is one of them, simply because it's not doing anything destructive that would cause you a problem if you didn't realize multiple photos were selected. Convert to DNG, however, sticks to the rule.

So what you're seeing isn't actually a bug, but you need to understand the logic for the behavior to make sense!
