Changing pdf preset should reset page range to 'all'
Unfortunately InDesign remembers page range setting even when changing PDF preset from dropdown list in Export dialog. It would be awesome for page range to reset to 'all' when choosing another PDF export preset. I don't always remember check the range and have to do the pdf file twice. Not the major problem, but a little improvement :)

In the Adobe documentation https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/exporting-publishing-pdf.html#:~:text=Choose%20File%20%3E%20Export.,)%2C%20and%20then%20click%20Save.
there is a NOTE that says you can hold Option or Alt to Change the Cancel button to a Reset button. This should reset the settings back to the default. This doesn't work on my M1 mac, running Monterey version 12.1 and InDesign 2022.
Argghh! It would be great if they could fix this!!!
Would it instead be possible to make this an option in a PDF export preset? If the preset was "All pages" this is what it would default to every time, but still allow a range to be entered. If a preset could be "range" then that preset would show range by default and/or remember the last range chosen, but still allow "All" to be entered.

I hate this. It constantly trips me up. It should definitely revert when a preset is changed.
When I print a page range, it doesn't remember that page range forever...
This happens to me, too. And other people I know. Annoying.
