When I add "last1" to a citation template, automatically add the related "first1" parameter
Open, LowPublic

Description

Process for adding the parameters for another author's name to the template:

  1. Scroll all the way down.
  2. Click on 'Add more information'
  3. Click on 'Last name'
  4. Scroll all the way down.
  5. Click on 'Add more information'
  6. Click on 'First name'
  7. Repeat for every extra author.

Here's the process that I want:

  1. Scroll all the way down.
  2. Click on 'Add more information'
  3. Click on 'Last name'
  4. Hey, it added 'First name', too! How smart of it!

(Also, I don't want to have to perform Step #2 more than once per entire session of editing a template.)

In this specific case there might be an issue here, which is that last1 is an alias of last, as well as author, so someone might be adding the full author to last1 and not need first2 at all. This could be modeled by separating out author into a separate parameters though.
