why can't i save my files as a .wav?

i've just started working on the ableton software (and hopefully the console soon) and made my 1st track the other day. when i tried to save the file was a master .wav the only thing it saves is the kick drum at the beginning of the song--just 1 sec. i have no idea why it's doing that but it sucks to go through this. i want to make more tracks and learn the software but i can't if the .wav files won't save ALL the music i recorded.

    are you trying to export in mixer view or the arrangement? if so i would suggest finale export of wav in arrangement and make sure you select master as it well render/export all the tracks. good luck .. also make sure your markers are at the beginning and end of your track, thats about all i can think about and it should work if not Youtube has a shit load of tutorials on Live.
