[TYPO3-english] usability drawbacks

First of all I want to say there are very many improvements in TYPO3
4.3.1, thanks for the great work guys!
But here is the "but": there are also couple of drawbacks in usability
in new versions IMHO (I'm not sure in which version these "unwished"
features have appeared):
1. making a new record (for example tt_news record) is not possible in
Web/Page module any more. You have to choose List module. There used to
be the "Create new record" link in Page module also. Or am I missing
2. copying a record (for example tt_news) is not possible with the
"click menu" in Page module even though the records are there visible.
One can choose "Copy" from the record's clickmenu but there never
appears "Paste..". If I choose List module, I get the paste *icon* after
copying, but the clickmenu still doesn't have the "Paste" option there
either. I think this is not logical.
As TYPO3 is very configurable, maybe I could change this default behaviour?
I found for the point 2 the user tsconfig option
contextMenu.[key].disableItems, but I don't think this is it. Since the
Paste does appear sometimes and with some items, just not always.
As for the point 2, this can be a tt_news thing. But how about point 1,
anyone knows if this can be added somehow?
With kind regards
