Hello, I am new to the CADTutor community. I am a previous user of Microstation (about 16 years) and have been using AutoCAD 2000 for about 6 months now. One thing I just can't seem to figure out is how to properly use XREFS and External References. More specifically, how do I turn off layers of an XREF and save those settings so that when I come back into the drawing, those layers remain off? I am referencing a site plan for other uses, but many of the site plan's layers are not needed on the drawing I am referencing it to. If i need to use a script file to turn layers off upon entering the file, where can I find the proper programming language used for script files?
