Very often we do several mockup pages with same elements. For example, if we create website mockup - site header, footer, menu, sidebars are same for all pages. If we create application design - menu and other interface elements must stay here on all pages.

At now we must create a copy of master page and place elements over it in new layers. But if we need to change something in master page (for example, rename menu item) - we must do this repeatedly on each page.

Will be good to have "Specify master page" function for each page in document - draw.io place it as readonly background (read-only layer) for current page, and update this background if master page changed.

If there is a way to have globalized layers on different pages/tabs i.e. layers that apply to the whole .xml document instead of separate layers for each page/tab?
What I want to have is multiple pages/tabs that all use the same layers such that if I make changes to one layer on one page, the changes to that layer are applied to all the other pages as well.

Alternatively If there were a special 'linked' shape that displays a shape from elsewhere in the diagram or even embed an external diagram.
