Trace reference when using detail tool

Not applicable
When creating a detail using the detail tool I wish I could have a trace reference so that I could draw the detail in 2D over the live section.

I think this is possible to do.
Just do to your Detail Viewpoint after you created it, then right-click your desired Section in the Navigator and select the Show as Trace Reference command from the context menu. The Section will then be shown as a Trace in that Detail Viewpoint, and you can also drag it anywhere you want.
