With the current work flow it can be a bit tedious to create multiple, similar
items. The first step is to open the Data Manager and then double click on the
item of interest. Any text strings (e.g. an equation) cannot be selected easily
with the mouse so the quickest way is to click in the text area and then select
Ctrl-A and then Ctrl-C to copy the relevant text.

The next step is to create a new item by selecting Create > Equation (or
scaler, vector, plugin etc). Various items need to be filled out in the dialog
box including name, formula, vectors etc. Then, after editing, if you want to
compare it to the original item you must reopen the Data Manager to see them
both together.

A much simpler process would be to right click on the item of interest in the
Data Manager and select "Duplicate". The newly created duplicate item could
then be edited as required. This way, only the differnece between the items
must be entered instead of all the information.
