"Export selected" - Overwrite checkbox always unchecked
Not sure if it's a bug or an enhancement, but the reported behaviour seems inconsistent so I filled it as a bug.
When I save a preset on the Export Selected module as a local file export it never saves the Overwrite checkbox, keeping it always unchecked. For some of these presets there's a good change there's already an existing file and I have to check that checkbox everytime.

Actually, neither - it is intentional.
It was discussed and decided that in this particular case it is better to only let Overwrite be set at the export time, and be reset after each export, i.e. as it works now.
Why? Because it is easier to recover from the situation when you have exported with "Overwrite" disabled (just delete old variant) rather than from the export with "Overwrite" enabled - who knows what user may accidently overwrite?
