Just a couple of days ago I purchased Studio 2014 SP1 and the first problem I faced was the issue with splitting and merging segments during an alignment session. In previous editions with WinAlign it was quite straightforward. Now the only ways I could find are: a) connect one to many segments; and b) copy some items from one segment and then paste them into another one. However, sometimes it is important to split a segment into several ones rather than connect a source/target segment to many counterparts.
For example (English to Russian):

The source segment "EXW Ex Works (... named place)" matches to the two target segments: "EXW" and "Франко завод (… название места)".

I can link the source segments with the two corresponding target ones; however, I prefer to split the source one into 2 segments, namely "EXW" and "Ex Works (... named place)", to make a better connection. I can't insert an additional segment above or below that one or just split it as it was available in WinAlign. Is there any efficient way to do this in Studio SP1? Thank you in advance.
