- references have got their own widgets (to add a widget place cursor over the reference and press appeared icon);
- references have got their own settings to show and hide properties (place cursor over the reference and press appeared "i" icon);
- reference rename changes object name it refers to, and vice versa;
- a link, created for 2 references, creates the link between their objects, and vice versa;
- click on a reference opens the object it references and transfers user to the respective part of the infrastructure.
