I had never before exported to pdf a part of a file but your email prompted me to give it a go. I'm 
using LO on UbuntuStudio. My first go was completely successful and this is what I did.

The document has 211 pages with 10 pages front matter before the document's page numbering starts. 
I wanted to export my Chapter 12 which starts on page number 147 and ends on page number 153. LO 
Writer identifies these pages as  document page number 157 to 163 ( a count of 10 more than the 
pages' numbering due to the front matter).

I selected File > Export as PDF and then in the General tab, under the heading 'Range',  deselected the  
'All' button and selected the 'Pages' button. Then alongside the pages button I entered "157-163" 
(without the quotes). And then clicked Export at bottom right.

The result was a new document which just contained Chapter 12 of my original document with the 
pages correctly numbered 147 to 153.
