    Default XREF pallet

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi,
    I am new to CAD LT, I was trying to upload a pdf drawing file into the model, but when i type XREF in the command box, nothing shows. No pallets pop up.
    Is there a quick fix to this?

    For a PDF the command would be "pdfattatch" an Xref is for attaching other dwg files and the command is "_xattatch", having said that "xref" should open the xref manager.

    You can attach a variety of file formats from the XREF manager. The OP is doing it correctly.

    There are a couple of reasons for your pallet not showing up.

    It could be FILEDIA or maybe CMDDIA. Not sure which applies to the XREF manager.

    If you recently switched changed monitors, it might be off screen.

    If this is the case, there is a way to bring it back but I'm not sure how.
    Drafting is a breeze.
