Can I add a reference page from another FM file without deleting the existing ones?

I have two files in FM. Both have reference pages I want to use. Can I import a reference page from File A to File B without deleting the references pages in File B? Can I copy and paste selected reference items from File A into File B's reference page?

It appears to be an all-or-nothing situation, so you'll get all of the File A RPs. Any with the same names will overwrite those in B.

You could create the desired RP name in B, then copy over the contents from that RP in A (what I usually do).
You could also create a new empty document, import A's RPs, delete the ones you don't want, then import RPs from there to B.
