Studio 2011 TM - differentiate the same text with and without tags

I am working on DITA files downloaded from SDL TMS.
My Studio can't add 2 entries with the same text with different tagging into the TM.

For example, there are 2 segments in one file:
More... -- with tags
More... -- without tags

My TM only retain the last submission. After I translate "More..." with tags, when translating "More..." without tags, the TM says "different target in translation memory". Then, after I translate "More..." without tags, when translating "More..." with tags, it says "different target in translation memory" again... It doesn't retain both of "More..." and "More...".

Is there an option to make my TM tag-conscious? Or can I allow multiple translations for identical source segments, like I can with Trados 2007?

The default "Add as new translation"... Aug 22, 2013

... is Ctrl+Shift+U. But you can find this on the Translation menu in case you have a different shortcut.

That should work.

I think the legacy Trados differentiates the source if there are tags. Why Studio doesn't? It seems this occurs when [tag] encloses the whole segment, like [tag]More...[/tag].
