Boolean operations on parts in two different part studios?

fyorgefyorge Member Posts: 17 PRO
So, I'm working on a project that requires me to combine several parts using boolean operations.  Most of the parts imported into my main part studio, but a few of the parts are independent STEP files.  I know that I could create an assembly, export as a combined STEP and then re-import into a single part studio, but this seems excessively convoluted.  I would really like to be able to pull a part from one part studio into another part studio so that I can use the boolean operations with it.  Is there a way to do this that I haven't figured out yet?  If not, could I request that such a way be introduced?  (i.e. give the option of dropping an imported object into an existing part studio instead of always creating a new part studio...?)
