I have a bibliography with 150 entries, and want to create the same sub-thoughts for each bibliography entry, i.e. "Recommendations" that might be in that document.  Ideally "Recommendations, " so it automatically picks up the parent thought in the thought title.   I can't find any way, however, to replicate the thought through copy and paste or anything else.  Is there really no way to replicate a bunch of identically named sub-thoughts under numerous parent thoughts?

Thanks,

I've realized that I can simply past all of the subsidiary thoughts (with commas and semicolons) into a single new thought, and have them show up as desired.  So I only have to do one step for each bibliography entry, so not nearly as much of a pain as I'd thought.

You may already know this, but here are two easy methods for selecting multiple Thoughts that you want to copy:
  1. If you have multiple layers of child Thoughts (i.e., each child Thought is a parent to other Thoughts), use "Edit > Crawl Brain" to select all child Thoughts down to a certain level.
  2. If you have only one layer of child Thoughts, you can select all of them by doing a CTRL+click on the parent Thought's child gate.
Once you've selected your Thoughts, right-click in the Selection window and then select 'Copy Selected Thoughts'.  Then navigate to the Parent thought and do a paste. 

If you want the pasted Thought(s) to have only a single parent (i.e., the parent under which you pasted the Thoughts), then you'll need to manually unlink the pasted Thought(s) from their original parent.
