Export As automatically trims transparent pixels?

Today, I noticed that Export As is trimming out invisible pixels automatically.  In the screen shot, my image is 3072x1024. Export As treats it as a trimmed down 2734x437. This is not at all what I need. Is there a checkbox to turn this off? -- Save for Web (Legacy) does save out without trimming, however I try and avoid using that tool anymore, since I am affraid Adobe will someday remove it entirely.

Add a layer mask to each layer to be exported and that should eliminate the trim.

Select your layer in the layers panel, turn off the visibility of all other layers then go File>Export>Export As

I'm sorry, but I do not follow your instruction. I want to export all visible layers. Whether I have some, all or no layers selected in the Layers pannel, the same result occurs. The image Export As proposes is trimmed to visible pixels.

Jeff Arola's answer did lead me to a solution to the issue. In the screen grab, I added a full-image layer mask on the layer group called "fire ribbon". This way, when I use Export As, it regards anything inside of that mask to be important to export.

 

I consider that to be a "hack" to get around an unexpected behavior of PhotoShop. However, it is better than other possible hacks like using almost-transparent "registration marks" or borders. Optically invisible is not the same thing as mathematically invisible.
