    When creating a chapter from an edited volume the normal process is to find the book on a library's database and then import it. Once it has been imported I then change it to a "Book Section," cut and paste the Title into the Book Title field, cut and paste the Author into the Editors field, then type in the Title of the section, the Author, and the Pages.

    Unfortunately, if I am using a lot of chapters from an edited volume then I have to search the library's database again, import the volume, cut and paste both the Title and Author into the new appropriate fields, and change all the fields for the new author for each individual chapter. It seems like a simple operation such as "Copy..." or "Duplicate a Reference" would cut down on wasted time because then I would only need to change the fields for the new author rather than have to search again, import the book reference a second time, cut and paste the book title / author / editor, and also change fields. Can you add an operation like this in the drop down menu that also includes Upload Document, Import References, and Create New Reference? I'm thinking that the user would just need to choose the reference from their documents and then click on the Copy Reference item in the drop down menu.
