This isn't currently possible.  Unfortunately, it's also a little  
difficult to change right now, since we're trying to stabilize  
everything for a 1.5 release and it would require re-arranging large  
chunks of code.  We'll keep it in mind for future versions - I've  
heard similar requests before.

For now, the phenix.refine GUI now supports saving default parameters  
for a project, which will automatically load whenever you start the  
GUI.  So once you settle on the basic parameters (reflections,  
restraints, atom selections, etc.), you can make those the default,  
and open as many windows as you need and the parameters will be  
identical except where you change them.  (The PDB file, of course,  
needs to be re-loaded each time.)  This isn't quite what you're asking  
for but will save some time.
