Is there already a way to add a image texture to a drawing?
When I have a image texture on a face it's easy to calculate the projection of the pixel image down to a plane to get a transparent png file.
So I need a method to plce this image the right place onto the drawing sheet !? :roll:

Just unlocking again to announce that with git commit 54a8e85, Arch Section planes can now be added to TechDraw pages too, same as before in Drawing. The only difference, in TechDraw there is now a separate "Arch View" button for this (in Drawing we used the "Draft view" button).

The only thing that is not working ATM is the "Show Fill" property, because SVG fills don't work in TechDraw. I'll look at possible solutions next.
