I like the proposal of renaming Keep to Copy and placing it in the
palette of the Stop button. I was a bit worried about it getting
confused with the clipboard action of the same name, but making it a
secondary action of the Stop button should help with that.

At least to me this icon isn't intuitive (I wouldn't even suspect what
it does without reading the text; having read the text, the icon does
not make the meaning any more clear). Maybe we should use some icon that
indicates duplication? I can't think of one right now (two Journals
wouldn't be right because we duplicate an entry, not the entire
Journal), but maybe someone else has an idea?
