How do i create phrase from track to selected instrument

Hi everyone, this may be silly question but:
how does one create phrase from selection to existing/selected instrument (default behavior is that phrase is created in duplicated instrument). Can we have at least alias instrument - or ability to create phrase to already selected/playing instrument, rather than new one?
i understand that sometimes it makes more to have new instrument, so the original arrangement is not messed up, but it would be good to have ability to:

  • create phrase to selected instrument (and replace source selection/track in pattern with single note which will then trigger newly created phase)

maybe this would be good workflow improvement. What are your opinions?
