I'm doing my first job in Studio 2011 (only worked with 2007 and older soft before), so hope you guys can excuse my question. I believe the answer is right on the surface but I somehow can't find it.

The situation is like the following:

0 - I see a mistake in target lang window
1 - TM window shows 2 suggestions, both wrong
2 - I can't find the way to add my own version as the 3rd one
3 - If I enter my version right into target language window:
  3a - my version totally replaces whatever TM suggests
  3b - percent shown in middle column remains unchanged (say, 92); CM indicator appears. as I have totally re-done this segment I'm not happy with the same percen!
4 - If I opt to F2 or "Edit Translation Unit":
  4a - I can send my version from TM window to target language window by clicking on that green-n-yellow barrel, but still my version totally replaces the TM suggeststion I edited rather than appears as a separate suggestion
  4b - percent remains unchanged
  4c - exclamation mark appears in the yellow warning line at the bottom of TM window, with a message "Different target in translation memory", plus a hint offering me to either "Apply translation", or "Add as a new translation"
5 - I can "Apply translation" no problem but again, it doesn't add my version to the TM, and the main problem is that "Add as a new translation" remains a mission impossible as I cannot find any icon or menu for adding a new translation altogether.

I do NOT wish to update the entire TM. I only wish to add one version to the existing two.

The manual says little about editing fuzzy matches, and nothing at all about adding new translations to TM.

Thank you!
