create item would be way more useful if it could use the selected item 
as the template for creating the new elements.

going through all the fields and setting the values is rather painful 
and error prone...

as noted in the ticket mentioned above: the two dialogs (multiple 
duplicate and insert) should probably be merged.

have a wonderful day
