View Full Version : Prevent Cleanup of Xref's
3rd Apr 2009, 06:23 pm
The current project I'm working on is built on a slope, so the site plan needs to show both garage access (basement level) and front door access (first floor) which requires both the basement plan and first floor plan to be xref'd in. Xclipping the xref's so they don't overlap is working fine, but the hidden objects are still in the drawing, and are trying to cleanup with the displayed objects, resulting in really really bad problems. It's showing the displayed version cleaned up to ghosts and otherwise messing with the proper display of the half of the floors I'm trying to show.
Is there any way to make the two xref's not try to cleanup with each other?

woah! ok, i've never used it before and I don't even know what it does, really.... but I chose "bind:bind" from the shortcut menu and it fixed it! Nice.
I hope it doesn't break something else. Anyone wanna give me a quick rundown on the purpose and use of xref bind?

go to your styles manager in one of the files, and go in Architectural Objects, then down to Wall cleanup group definitions. Check to see if your cleanup for that wall style has allow wall cleanup between host and xref drawings checked. If they are both X-refs, you can create a different group definition for each file, that way they do not attempt to cleanup with each other due to the definitions being different.
Binding an X-ref breaks the xref and essentially creates an inserted group.
