# How can I draw between 2 pictures or more in Asymptote?

Perhaps, it would be more convenient to
track and use `transform`

, like this, for example:

```
settings.outformat="pdf";
size(9cm);
picture pic;
guide gc=scale(sqrt(2),1)*unitcircle;
guide gc1=shift(-1/sqrt(2),0)*scale(1/sqrt(2))*unitcircle;
guide gc2=shift( 1/sqrt(2),0)*scale(1/sqrt(2))*unitcircle;
pair A=(-1/sqrt(2),0);
pair B=( 1/sqrt(2),0);
filldraw(pic,gc ,orange, darkblue+0.7bp);
filldraw(pic,gc1,lightred, red+ 0.7bp);
filldraw(pic,gc2,lightblue,blue+ 0.7bp);
transform[] tr={
identity(),
shift(3,2)*rotate(42),
shift(3,-2)*rotate(242)
};
for(var rel: tr) add(rel*pic);
draw(tr[0]*B--tr[2]*B,blue+0.7*bp);
draw(tr[1]*A--tr[2]*A,red+0.7*bp);
for(var rel: tr){
dot(rel*(A--B),UnFill);
label("$A$",rel*A,plain.NE);
label("$B$",rel*B,plain.NE);
}
```

Based on your question and comment, you want to draw a line between two coordinates on two different pictures by referencing the pictures. I don't know of a direct way to do this, but maybe the following will suit your needs.

I define the offset of pic2 as a pair. Then you may use this pair to also offset the dashed line endpoint.

```
unitsize(1cm);
picture pic1,pic2;
draw(pic1,(0,0)--(3,3),Arrow);
dot(pic1,(1.5,1.5));
draw(pic2,(0,3)--(3,0),Arrow);
dot(pic2,(1.5,1.5));
pair pic2offset = (5,0);
add(pic1);
add(shift(pic2offset)*pic2);
draw((1.5,1.5)--pic2offset+(1.5,1.5),black+dashed);
shipout(bbox(2mm,Fill(white)));
```
