Default select passages in several tracks and create, with one click, a new track

Hello "Reaper user expert" Is there a function that allows you to select passages in several tracks and create, with one click, a new track with these selections.
Thanks in advance!

Bonjour "expert utilisateur de Reaper" Existe-t-il une fonction que permet de sélectionner des passages dans plusieurs pistes et de créer, en un seul clic, une nouvelle piste avec ces sélections.
Merci à l’avance!

Without custom actions, using three standard k/b shortcuts and a mouse select/drag:
1. Copy the selections (remember enable/disable envelope moves)
2. Create new track (which should be selected)
3. Paste the selections in the new track (only the first item will paste in the new track)
4. Drag the pasted items that are not in the new track, into the new track.

The closest I've been able to come with a custom action, pastes copies of all the selected items into each selected track - so for four items, you get a copy of everything you selected, in each track. Which is more work than doing it the ordinary way.

[FWIW the custom action is:

Copy selected area of items
Paste as takes in items
Explode takes of items in place
Create new track

Then you still have to delete the surplus and drag the duplicates to your new track.]

I wonder if it is just as quick to cut and paste and render out to a new track by muting all the rest of the tracks... hmmm, maybe not!
Just being nosy, but why do you need to do this? I am guessing spoken word editing but may be way off beam...
