How do I select an exact an area of mapping... Manual select doesn't seem to work for me, I can't drag the extents of the box

I'm using the Export Tab on the main site. I want a large area at detail of about 1:5000 however the it only lets me export small areas at this scale. How do I change the area???

Is this using the "export" tab on the main site, or something else?

Also, if it's the main site that you're talking about, what OS and browser are you using?

It is also of interest which editor you use.

It seems you don't want "to map" like in "create/enhance objects in OSM" but like "I want to create a map to download and print"? Is that correct?
