combine images with out exporting and importing

Sometimes an appointment will start off with bitewings then end up needing an FMX. The only way support told me I could combine these was to export all the xrays then start a new FMX and import all of them. It would be nice to be able to just combine 2 without doing all of that.

    We had a patient come in that had not been seen in 2 years. Hygienist started off with BWX but when she looked at them felt that the patient was going to require SRP and so a FMX was going to be need for insurance. She preceded to take the FMX minus the BWX that was taken. Our old program we could combine the 2 by just moving them. I had to export the bwx and fmx and start a new fmx that I them imported the xrays into.
