I have never seen this work in 6.1 or 7.0.

Export always exports all of the records visible on the current page, which by default is 80.

If you want to export 2 items, filter so only 2 are shown.

If you want to export all items, change the number of records from 80 to Unlimited.

You never have to select anything.

If you use OpenERP 6.0 or 6.1:

Do the some thing but the Export voice is in the menus on the right side
