Can't export a .stl, only a pdf?

Dear Onshape, Please help. I have attempted to 'export' to a .stl, however onshape only seems to let me export then download a pdf? I have saved .stl files before however. 
Any ideas? Many thanks! See link

    Then, once you've clicked on that "Export...", you can select the "STL" option from the "Format" dropdown:
