I am sketching an environment scene, wherein I want to draw the location for trees as a Grease Pencil object. So that I can create a more appropriate floor plan design. When I am done sketching, I want to replace the Grease Pencil objects with the actual tree meshes. So I was wondering, considering I keep the object origins in-tact by duplicating the Grease Pencil trees, can I replace them with the mesh object? And the other way around, can I also replace a mesh with a Grease Pencil object?
The Link/ Transfer data menu pop-up (Ctrl+L) doesn't allow me to link the object data between different object types.
If this is possible with a script that can be placed in the Ctrl+L menu that would also be fine with me.
