WISH: Link files with option to not load on OPEN

On almost all projects we need need to link various other files into the scene and we always link these as “external references” where the layer structure is kept:


But some of these files are big, containing 3D scan data, data from other disciplines like architecture, engineering etc. And many of these files are only needed occationally.

So being able to choose if they should be read and loaded into memory upon opening the project would be great. It would save time and resources.

Hi Holo,
This wish is on The Pile: Open without blocks : RH-65765 (myjetbrains.com)
We had some discussion about this here:
Working with lots of linked blocks - Rhino / Rhino for Windows - McNeel Forum

Definitely much needed option, hope it can make it to V8.
