Lightroom CC 2015.7 export with Long Edge used to Resize to Fit actually resizes the short edge, not the long edge. Short Edge works as expected. Workaround is to use Dimensions instead of Long Edge.

Seems to be working fine for me in Lr CC 2015.7 on Win10 exporting CR2 RAW files to JPG.

Perhaps you could give more specifics on what you're doing along with a few example images - pre & post export - and a screenshot of your export settings?

Should have pointed out this is on OS X.  Details here: http://mikepasini.com/corners/2016/11/07-lightroom-export/index.htm

Mike, reset your preference file. 

Close Lightroom. Hold down [Opt]+[Shift] and launch Lightroom. Overwrite the preferences when prompted. 

Does your Export dimension behavior work now?

Yes, it does. Long edge is resized to the specified dimension. Thanks!
