Summary

Currently, all our exporters set Selection Only to False by default. In my experience, I pretty much always want this enabled, and often forget to set this.

According to many users that I've seen, they seem to say the same thing. Due to overwhelming requests, here's a patch to enable Selection Only for all the built-in exporters

This patch is against the 'addons' git. The Collada exporter is in the 'blender' git, and so must have a different patch, here:

This would be a great change. 👍

When the checkbox is set to active by default, will the whole scene be exported if no objects are selected? That would be convenient as well.

Thanks!

@Metin Seven (MetinSeven) No, the export will be completely empty if nothing is selected.

I thought the desire was for “Selection Only” be set true if there is something selected, but false if nothing is selected?

That would be the most convenient solution.

I don't have a strong opinion on this one, I'm fine going with what most users want.

If we do this, then Alembic, USD and COLLADA need the same change.
