First of all I would like to thanks for this great application what could replaced my original old Lightroom as digital photography post process tool. Darktable is fantastic and I love it from almost all aspects except the GUI what is far from perfect but this is the least problem what could be available. So really nice work what I would like to thank.

At this weekend I got 2 problems with the apps in same subject what I would like to report.

If I use local copies for my photos (of course for just some of them) the export as 1:1 copy is not working and this is the result with the copy of selected photo also. While all the requirements are available for the process as all the other export processes works like a charm just the 1:1 copy resulting a 'cannot export...' type error message.

I could understand if with local copies such operations do not allowed but in this case please tell us in the error message that on local copies this operations not allowed. But basically the app could finish this operation as all required data available. DT know the filename and also have a copy of the original file so the operation could be finished easily as it already happens with all the other export options.

So with 'local copied' photos without the original storage backend the 1:1 copy as export and also the copy of selected photo(s) process make an error result what is not the expected one.

Could you please investigate it?

My environment is an Ubuntu 17.10 with the officially published DT PPA so at the end with the latest 2.4.1 DT.

Thanks a lot in advanced!
