Feature Request - Conditional Formatting impropved rule cloning

It would be nice if, when you clone a rule, the conditions do start from scratch when you clone them to the next column.



If I create a rule that I want to apply to all my columns, then I will clone that rule.  When I go in to edit the rule, and select the next column to apply it to, the condition for the formatting is erased and I have to redefine the condition again.  This happens for every rule.



1. I define the "IF cell greater than 80%, THEN format cell green" rule to column5

2. I clone this rule.

3. I open the rule and change it from column5 to column6.

--------now the condition is gone, and must be redefined

4. I select "Define Custom Criteria"

5. I select "greater than"

6. I type in the 80% criteria


The cloning process could literally be cut in half, eliminating steps 4,5,6 if the condition is not reset every time you change the column.
