Cropping Referenced Drawings

Feature Overview

The ability to crop and un-crop Referenced drawings similar to how we can currently crop and un-crop Placed items.

Feature Description:

Even though Referenced drawings span multiple layers, they are in essence treated as a single entity in that they can be selected and rotated, scaled, bound, etc, all from the References menu. If we can see the References bounding box, it would be helpful to treat that bounding box the same as we do with Placed items; cropping and un-cropping the referenced content; all layers associated with the referenced item would be affected.
