New Export Page: Lots of problems sorry!
Not sure what the new export page is trying to achieve (we don't use Resolve because of its tabbed interface) but please fix the following...
Allow keyboard entry in all drop-downs so we can hit 'q' for quicktime or the first letter of a custom preset for example.
Remember previous settings per timeline as per the previous export window. Again, why create extra work? UPDATE: I have one project which never remembers the last export setting but another which does. Maybe the one that doesn't was created in an older version but I'm not 100% if this is why.
The roll-ups/accordions are painful because you can't see both video and audio settings simultaneously - yet more pointing and clicking. Also, the vertical spacing on everything is too big, especially for laptops - which is why you've probably implemented accordions? We don't use Resolve because of it's large vertical spacing, it's a pain-point for many of us, especially when on the road.
It's great that 'Export' is now the primary button and not 'Send to Media Encoder'. However, hitting enter to export opens one of the settings dropdowns and doesn't export anything? If we see a big blue button, we expect enter to trigger it - right?
Several times now, the Range dropdown has set itself to 'Custom'. Not sure why, however I did notice that it had set itself to the previous video exported (20sec) when the new video was 15sec, thus rendering 5sec of black at the end. Not sure if this is a bug but I can't reliably replicate this.
If you're going to reset workflows (agile development?) please keep a running list of UI/UX standards so you implement new features in a quality way from the start. Otherwise, it just wastes so much of our time.
Also, don't wait for up-votes, this stuff is so basic that it should be included from the beginning as a point of pride. You're Adobe - right? Not a start-up.
We need less pointing and clicking in general, not more!

This! Especially 2 and 3. Doesn't help that the new export interface is painfully sluggish. Move the mouse and you can actually see how all the mouse-hover effects on the lists and buttons lag behind. Video settings are partly hidden behind "...more". Premiere doesn't remember settings, in my case it doesn't show previously saved custom settings though this might be a problem on my end, have to investigate.
