    It is not smart at all, to say "You cannot" How can you be so sure...
    Please don't get me wrong Barta but in our days everything is possible!!!

    I found many times that a solution to any potential limitations of a software can be overpassed by an add-on so... The key is a tool to do the job!!!

    Therefore I will post a Tutorial that can be considered as a solution to Nuno's problem...

    However,
    It is good to have open mind as there might be another easier way to follow other than my post.
