Trying to export data using WB, selected (but not checked) a schema, then checked 4 tables.  Pushing the "Start Export" button results in:

11:22:42 Nothing to do, no schemas or tables selected.

How to repeat:
Check only tables, not schema.

Suggested fix:
Either recognize checked tables, independently of their schema, or explicitly check the associated schema when some of it's tables are checked.

I believe this is an old bug that has already been fixed.

It is not fixed in 5.1.14:

* In Data Dump tab, select (but do not check) a schema
* This causes tables to be displayed, click one.
* Without checking the associated schema, click "Start Export"

Sorry, I misunderstood it. It will now auto-select the schema whenever you select a table in it.

An entry has been added to the 5.2.16 changelog:

In the Data Dump facility of the Administrator, if a schema was selected, but its corresponding checkbox not selected, and then several of its tables selected for export, the following error occurred when the Start Export button was clicked:

Nothing to do, no schemas or tables selected.

I am having the same problem.

MySql Workbench 6.3.6

I have previously been able to get a data dump from this database. Now I can't get any from any of the schemas I have open in workbench.

I've been able to run queries and make changes to the databases.

Then when I try to use the export function I get this message:

Nothing to do, no schemas or tables selected.
