I went to the view, where I have the possibility to edit mapping.
When I clicked "Modify DS/TO" I got the field to add new fields.

Sorry I read the upper'CREATE Data Structure / Template Object:',
which makes a new record
and I didn't used
'UPDATE existing Data Structure / Template Object:'

I didn't understood that extension yet - maybe it is better

In my case not - in my templates normally there is need to change the DS 
in order to get more or less fields. But this depends on authors.If you 
change DS you must first save the change in order to change TO. Not so 
easy than using MTB anyway.

I mean in the case, where you use the MENU, where I can get the WIZARD 
for moving content from one page to another page.
In *this* situation the moved element goes first to unused elements.
But of cource I can use other methods.
