Earlier we could have several identical snippets when setting up a topic in Manage Categories.

Later this option was removed in order to facilitate import/export (I believe it was).

We can thankfully still add identical snippets in a topic we are adding data to.

However, it is a bit cumbersome involving a three-layer menu-dropdown and a (in some cases) very long list to choose from.

It would be sweet if an option was added to the top-level of the wrench simply stating "Adding similar snippet below this one" (probably a better wording can be found).

It would speed up things a lot and be useful.

+1 to that too

The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

Doesn't Ctrl+T do that? What am I missing?

@Merion:

In the topic CTRL+T adds a Text snippet below the one you are in.

It does not add a new snippet which type is identical to the one you are standing.

@Farling:

I actually meant for this to be used while editing topics :-)

Well, I guess I failed my "Coherent Speak" roll :-)

Not entirely true.

Ctrl + T adds a text snippet unless the snippet you're presently in is a GM directions snippet in which case the new snippet is that type as well.

I'm not sure if this intended behavior or a bug. I submitted a bug report on it a long time ago and never got a response.

If it's a bug, please don't fix it - on the contrary, expand it so it adds whatever snippet your currently in. At least I would find that handy
