Having a simple document and trying to export it as PNG file:

 

(1) Selecting "File > Export..." from the menu and Export Window opens

(2) Selecting "PNG" and clicking the "Export" button…

(3) a Mac OS X "Save As" panel opens

(4) I click "Save" in this panel

(5) a new Window opens "Confirm access to export folder"

(6) I click the "Confirm" button 

(7) error alert pops up that it couldn't save/export the file.

 

I'm not entirely sure what triggers it. It failed 3 times like that in a row, but then suddenly started working normally (w/o the strange confirm access window). This is on a Yosemite machine (with all the "latest" updates: 10.10.5 (14F2511)).

In fact the 'com.apple.appkit.xpc.openAndSavePanelService' crashed silently (only to be noticed by the generated User Diagnostic Report):

"Application Specific Information:

Currently the problem seems to have disappeared and I can not reproduce it anymore. I'll will investigate further, if it might pop up again.

I have the same issue. I tried to export to PDF and all I get is a blank Save dialog that won't go away. I have to force quit. This is repeatable.

We were extremely pissed off because we were in hurry and could not export a single PDF. Perhaps “Reset File Export Presets” or another clearing saved us.

If you could that would be great! There is a known issue regarding the confirmation prompt appearing accidently that shall be fixed in the next release.

Unfortunately there is a bug with Sierra and High Sierra that would cause the Save Dialog to hang if you attempt to rename or save over an existing file. Did you never encounter this when doing the same behaviour in 1.6?
