Save reference
Saves the reference item.

Save target
Saves the target item.

Copy Reference to target
Copies all fields from the reference to the target, this is useful when there are lots of fields in common.
Be careful: When you use copy reference, although the language of the target will be set automatically, all other fields will be copied. Most of the time you will have to modify Title, alias, category at least.

Closes the current screen and returns to the previous screen without saving any modifications you may have made.
