This is a confusing part of the UI. I think selection in
this case refers to a range selection (made with the range tool)
rather than a region selection.

jdavisp3 is correct.

we have "range": a named, persistent interval on the timeline, up in the ruler area. "selection" - a transient selection made in 1 or more tracks and defining time only. "region selection" - a transient set of selected regions.

"export selection" applies to the second only.

I made this exact same mistake. I wonder if it might be better
not to grey it out, but pop up a dialog explaining the sort of
selection it refers to, if there is no current selection.

I'd be happy to make the patch for that if it is worthwhile.

Any chance it could just be made to work with regions!?

to export a region, just right (context) click on the region, select the region's submenu, choose "Export".

context clicking is a valuable tool for exploration ...

Right-clicking won't work for multiple regions. Well, Select All Beween Cursors does the trick...

Exporting multiple regions will be a feature of the New Export Dialog. this will be a major undertaking - its at least twice as much work as the New Import Dialog, and that took 3-4 weeks of tweaking to get it about 85% done. I think its a useful feature, but I don't want to add it outside of the export dialog work.
