Till we can figure out your issue, you might want to try an external
program to create the PDF file.
For Windows, I use doPDF - which is free. I have used it from XP, Vista,
and Win7 systems. I have been using it for all of the other packages that
I need a PDF printout instead of a paper one. Once installed, it will show
up as a printer, so you will "print to PDF" instead of exporting.
The "range option" makes me thing Calc instead of Writer. But like a
printer, if you can print a "range" of pages to the printer, you can do the
same to doPDF, since it acts like a printer, but the output is to a file
and not paper.
I also wonder if something was corrupted in your user config files. That
can happen, and has for me on both Windows and Ubuntu/Linux, mostly for
printer issues before 4.1.x came out. If so, it might be fixed by renaming
[while LO is closed] the user config folder and then let LO recreate it
when you open LO. This is what you need to do for a clean install of LO,
since it "clears out" the user profile and associated data.

I have tried this on windows (XP) and linux (Fedora) and I can not
reproduce it. A couple of basic questions:
I am assuming you are talking about a writer document?
is the document odf, doc, docx?

I have not tried this previously but wish to do so now. My problem
that I want to export a selection of text in the main document but when
select "Export as PDF" the 'Range' option is greyed out. I cannot select
anything and the default is 'All'. Is there a setting somewhere that I
missing? I am using LO version 18.104.22.168 in Windows 7.
