Split knowledge items

Hi
A great feature would be the ability to select a portion of text or set the cursor at a certain point within a knowledge item's text and right click "Split here". This would then create a new knowledge item (of the same kind) right below, containing the select portion of text.
Thanks!
Francesco.

Hi Francesco,

Thanks for this suggestion! Could you let me know a concrete scenario in which this feature would be useful? For me it seems that cutting and pasting text into a new knowledge item wouldn't be that difficult or time-consuming.

Best regards,
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer
A concrete scenario for this is copying a long paragraph in a PDF, making a quote from it, but then deciding (sometimes weeks later) that there are actually three or more ideas in there. A quick split would then allow to create new quotes from the text without having to enter the metadata for all the other notes.
Thanks!
Francesco.
