Trace Reference another project drawing

Hello,

 

Would be nice to have these additional features in "Trace" tool:
1. Trace drawings from another project (Closed or Opened);

2. Mirror Reference function, next to Drag Reference, Rotate Reference;

I may be wrong but I think you can already do 1. unfortunately never used it so someone who has might clarify.

2. Great suggestion to be able to mirror a trace reference.

As far as I know T&R can not reference external files directly.

There may be a work-around though.

You can create a layout page that links to views in an external file.

You could then use that layout page as your reference.
