And when you do "use my block", the *bottom pane* gets modified. The
menus you get on the upper right pane are only there for your
convenience. It won't get modified itself, only the bottom pane is.

You'll get the menus on the bottom pane when you right-click on a
conflicted block (maybe you need first to left-click on it).
