In WFC:
1. Select the source term. Click CTRL-ALT-T.
2. Select the target term. Click CTRL-ALT-T.
3. Term window appears. Press Enter, window disappears, term added.

In WFP:
1. Select the source term. Click CTRL-ALT-T.
2. Term window appears. One has to type or paste the target term here. I can see no keyboard shortcut to add the term, so an extra click is needed or 3 tabs and Enter.

As I understand, the WFP process is far less productive than the WFC, unless I am missing something?

My ideal work flow would be:
1. Select the source term. Click CTRL-ALT-T.
2. Select the target term. Click CTRL-ALT-T.
3. Term is saved to default glossary silently, or, if this is too much to ask, at least be able to just press Enter or a shortcut rather than click.

Just a note here, silent save with a similar approach has been an option in DVX since I can't remember... where the process is even easier as it supports simultaneous selection in source and target:

Select source term (in left column)
Select target term (in right column)
Press Shift+F11 to save silently
