LIGHTROOM: Export clears buffer

I have to export a photo in 4 different resolution. So I've created 4 presets, each one renames photo adding a special prefix to the photo's name. So I start with the first export, choose a name and I copy it to buffer. Export. Ctrl+Shift+E, second preset, Ctrl+V the name. Export. Ctrl+Shift+E, thirs preset, Ctrl+V. Ops, error, buffer is empty. If I start a new export when the last one is still in work - the buffer is empty.. Export uses a buffer? Strange...

I'm not sure what you mean by buffer.
And exactly how are you exporting these photos?

Sorry for my english, I'll try to explain what I've discovered, here's screenshot, as you see I use 5 presets. I copy image's name to the clipboard (that's I call buffer). Then I export it. After that I click Ctrl+Shift+E and choose another preset and then click Ctrl+V to insert the same name and export it, etc. Very often the clipboard is empty and I found a way to understand when that happens:
The default height of the Export window shows me only 10 presets at a time, so I increased the height by ~15 pixels. But sometimes when I open Export windows it's height resets to the default one, so I don't see the last preset "CT5_sm" in the same time my clipboard becomes empty, so something goes wrong in LR... I've exported more than 1k photos and this problem I get every 2-3 photos that I export, so when I see that the height is changed - I understand that I lose a name in my clipboard...

So you're referring to Lightroom, not Photoshop.
That helps.
