Actually, I found an issue with the envisioned 'add a duplicate entry' 
design. The detail view would need that option as well. Because I still 
think that grouping it all in one option makes sense I did another round 
of mockups. They use the scissor icon for the clipboard and the copy-to 
option icon is black and white which I think makes sense here.
