capability to duplicate a transformation configuration

In RSA RTE the edit menu supports duplication of a UML model element such as a capsule. This is a very useful feature when you want to create a new model element similar to another element when inheritance is not the desired mechanism. The tool should provide the same capability for duplicating a transformation configuration. The "Duplicate" action on the edit menu should be enabled for a selected transformation configuration, and it should duplicate all the fields in the specification except for the name. This allows the user to quickly create a new configuration by requiring minimal editing changes for only those few fields that are different.

    It is already possible to duplicate a transformation configuration by means of copy/paste. Do like this:
    1) Make sure transformation configuration files are shown in the Project Explorer by clicking the view menu, and then "Customize View...". In the Filters tab make sure the "Transformation Configuration Files" checkbox is unmarked.
    2) Select the transformation configuration file you want to copy, and do Ctrl+C
    3) Select the project node, and do Ctrl+V
    => A dialog appears where you can specify the name of the pasted TC.
