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.

Hello Minh,

 

Thanks for letting me know. Maybe there is some public place where all development IDEA's such as this one can be tracked down, their status ?
