This command is in both LinkGrabber and the Download Tab.

The current behaviour is to create a new package as either the first or last package in the list and move the links into it. The location is based on the LG tick-box "Add at top"

This puts the package in an unexpected position. More importantly, package settings are sometimes lost.

The proposed revision is to rename the command "Merge into Package". All links or packages that are selected will be merged into the package which is right-clicked upon to bring up the context menu.

Note: "Copy into new Package" will continue to create a new package. However, the position should be independent of the "Add at top" setting in LG.

Note for future: When Assemblies are implemented, they will not be merge-able, so this issue does not affect them. Users should be able to move links into and out of Assemblies or to copy an Assembly under a new name.
