Feature #2039 - Use default selection for exports

issue #2039 Use default selection for exports
Description
When nothing is selected and the user wants to export, FreeCAD shows a warning message. IMHO it would be useful to automatically export the latest entry from the tree.v

My mind isn't made up about this. Having to select something before export trips up a lot of beginners. On the other hand, automatically exporting the last item in the tree could also be confusing.

And some export options would be nice, like exporting objects visible in the 3D view.
