    If you make a new layer, and insert the x-ref onto that layer, then freezing that layer makes the x-ref disappear. Saves having to individually freeze each of the x-ref's layers.

    "...isolate (like unload)"...

    Ok, isolate is to make that single object visible and unload is to make it disappear. What needs to be the end result??

    In the case of making is disappear i would use the command 'Hideobjects' when selecting the xref object.
    Use 'UNISOLATEOBJECTS' to make it appear again (its different from layon / layiso and freezing layers).


    A lisp i use:
    Code:
    (Defun c:hideob ()
      (command "HIDEOBJECTS")
      (princ)
    )
    
    (Defun c:showob ()
      (command "UNISOLATEOBJECTS")
      (princ)
    )

    Layer manager. Select the "All non-Xref Layers" filter. Freeze all layers except for the on that the XREF is on.

    Or without messing with layers use the ISOLATEOBJECTS command.
    Drafting is a breeze.
