Re: Material Table

create new by right mouse click on a catagory name  (IE: Wood)

 

create from an exsting to slightly modify:  RMB the material to start with and copy, then right mouse click on a catagory name  (IE: Wood) and paste,  then modify this pasted material

So easy once you know what to do, but there needs to be a more intuitive way to go about this. Even a little "help" drop down instruction would have saved me an hour of searching on the internet....

That's exactly my thoughts, too.  So easy once you know it.  So easy to forget if you don't do it often.  And new users aren't going to discover that technique intuitively.
