Unfortunately this might be one of many cases where the UI just does not
work yet.
There are some patches pending but we decided not to apply them since
they are big and could cause side effects.
The UI that you see is more a declaration of the direction of the UI
rather than a working functionality.
It has a lot of glitches we will be cleaning in the upcoming month
leading to Beta.


I guess the main goal at the moment is answering the questions like:
a) Is the whole model of the "list-select-do" like it was in old dialog
boxes is the right model?
b) Do the buttons make sense? Does their meaning makes sense?
c) Should we pre-fill the lists automatically (like it is done now) or
require search first?
d) Is it Ok to switch back and forth between the list view and item view
or we should combine them in some way?
And many more...

Ideas and comment are always welcome!
Thank you for looking into this. Sorry if we did not meet your expectations.

Thank you,
Dmitri
