I have set up user presets in the export window - which I have been successfully using for some time. Today, when I tick the box for any of my user presets, the righthand side greys out - so I cannot choose the destination folder, name the image etc. Any suggestions why this is doing this?

It's a confusing UI design. To modify the settings of a preset, instead of checking the box, just click the preset's name:

There's a hint about this at the bottom of the Export window that's easy to miss:

It would be better to only grey-out the sections when multiple presets are checked.

Ah - yes. Looks sort of obvious now - but then, if there is a checkbox there it sort of makes sense to tick that! I'm not sure what it's there for.

 

Anyway -  all solved now. Thanks for the help and the quick repy John. I needed to send a photo off and was getting very frustrated.

The checkboxes allow you to select multiple presets to export at once, the new multi-batch export introduced in LR 9.
