It's worth mentioning that in FCP 7, copying and pasting in a new timeline doesn't adjust the timeline to the settings of the clips, like a normal timeline does if you drag/drop your first clip in it. Sometimes you can have some faults in this. Sometimes it's immediately obvious (if you drop your HD widescreen footage in an SD 4/3 timeline, you see it immediately) but sometimes you can have some troubles when going from a 1440x1080 timeline to a 1920x1080 timeline or vice versa.
It's fixable, but that's a situation where you in both cases see a widescreen viewer, and depending on titles and shots in your project, you don't always immediately see that things are wrong (if you just do it quickly quickly, copy and paste and exporting).

It's an off-topic comment, btw.

And I agree with your point that's it's more productive to have answers, but I think there are many answers in this thread and the point also still stands: it's not possible to just export a selection from an existing timeline in FCP X now. (a work around is not the same as having the solution itself, it just - hopefully - has the same result)

The way I did it is to duplicate the project; edit it to what you want; than export.
