The dependency Matrix view offers the fastest and easiest way to create many references with next to no effort.
Once you open this view, you will see a grid with all the components in your workspace. On the left side, you see the "source" components, and along the top, we have the "target" components. To create a reference between 2 components, simply left-click on the intersection of the 2 components you wish to link.
After you have selected where to create the reference, by clicking, now you can select the properties for said reference.
You can also create references to other workspaces.
Open a second workspace, and then select the "source" workspace in the left side menu. Then click on the top menu button to select the target workspace.
The Second menu icon lets you select the type of reference created by clicking on the grid intersection.
