Blender Version
2.77a

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. select all objects
  2. File > Export > FBX
  3. Check "Selected Objects"
  4. Only one cube is exported

It is due to layers, one cube is in the second layers. It start working when you link Scene layer with Render layer (button next to layers button in View3D), you can even turn off it, after you switch on.

There is no bug here, only visible objects are ever considered by any tool in Blender (you won’t move, edit, etc. a selected object which is on an hidden layer either).

Quite obviously, export addons do not have access to a specific 3DView context, hence they can only use scene's layers here.

I understand that invisible layers are unavailable for export, but it is little strange, that I have to set render layer for exporting something what I can see in viewport. Thanks for explain.
