Using UDVs across projects

I have a collection of over 100 projects in RoboHelp 2015. I estimate those projects would have around 25000 to 30000 entries that can be converted to variables. As quite a few of them would be common across the projects, would it be possible to create a repository of these variables in Resource Manager and selectively use them the way snippets can be used by moving them in Resource Manager and syncing up in projects?

Hmmm, I'm going to hazard a guess here and say it will either be impossible or difficult to achieve.

I say that because in RoboHelp (2015 Release) I'm able to right-click a Snippet and see the following context menu items:

And in the User Defined Variables pod there are no such options offered. Additionally, I am unable to click and drag an individual UDV to the Resource Manager. I also tried with a Variable Set.

Looks like something for the Wish Form.
