I'm trying to work out if it's possible to export a drawing to jpg format at a certain size 5000 x 5000 pixels?

Exporting the drawing is no problem, but I cannot work out how to define the jpg size. The exported files appear very small and detail is indistinct.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

I would not use the method you described above.  Instead I would use a screen capture program like SnagIt or the Windows Snipping tool.

You could also take a multi-step approach and first use the free Primo PDF program to create a PDF then open the file using the free Gimp program, bring the PDF in and export to the JPG format.  You can change the resolution when you export and in the end get better results.
