I am unable to export under research folder though I have owner of the folder and have full control and export permission on the folder.
I can search but under export tab, "New" button is grayed out.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Make sure you have you see items in review , before you proceed with the export.
In past i had notice the sometime the 'New' button is greyed out for some time and then gets enabled.But it was my test enviornment .
What OS do you have on the client machine ?
