I'm not an expert but I am actively interested in usability.
I've got a big thing about consistency which is why I suggested this change.
I dont know if KDE has any specific guidelines but there are koffice applications with mutlipage documents that put Export in the File menu as I suggest and it does seem to be a standard Koffice have set for themselves. The Text CSV exporter in KSpread is a good example (and it provides the option to select which pages from the document are exported rather than just the current one). Kivio does things more like how Umbrello does but they may yet change to conform with the rest of Koffice, I couldn't say for sure. I guess that doesn't help all that much giving you examples of applications that do it both ways and you are probably following the lead of an existing application. Perhaps if you know a koffice developer they might be able to quickly and easily explain their reasoning to you and that might help you decide if this is approrpriate for Umbrello.
Thanks for your consideration.
