File / Export / Export as STL doesn't do anything

When I tried to export  a simple .scad file, the system doesn't do anything and no messages or STL files generated.  I have "2014.03" version.

Any idea why this would happen.

Thanks everyone in advance

Does your file render ok? Are you sure you've rendered it (F6) and not just hit preview (F5)?

It's easy to miss but if you haven't rendered your file first then there will be nothing to export - a message is displayed in the console window that says "Nothing to export! Try building first (press F6)."

Thanks a lot.  
I realized that rendering wasn't complete when I tried to export my design.

Thanks again :)
