custom re-usable image group

In a similar vein as what was done with Custom re-usable function group.  It would be nice to have the same for graphic objects.

We think consistency in a visual interface is critical to a well perceived information.  For that matter, now that we can group images it would be very good if we could create library of standard object we can re-use though out a project or even across project or to display group of similar information. for example:

A lighted fault button:

Image 2714

or a pattern of repeating information:

Image 2715

Then modification of the master would apply to all.  This would apply strictly to the object graphic options, Color, Size relative position.  Each object group instance then can be associated with is own variables set.

Likewise and I had posted something like it to create within a project a set of "My colors"  so we can keep color consistency a bit easier than what we do now.

There is a similar suggestion here, https://forum.iqan.se/en/communities/1/topics/2310-external-display-function-groups, where the idea is to have display pages in external files. 

Sounds like this idea is on making a re-usable "display page controls group" ?
