    Default AcDbZombieEntity?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    So I got an amusing error message today while trying to Refedit an xref.
    The message at the command line read: AcDbZombieEntity objects cannot be edited in place.
    After doing a little reading, I found out that Zombie Entities are what proxy objects used to be called in R13.
    I'm not really sure how this relates to the xref I was trying to edit, but I had to laugh when I saw that message. I mean, come on, Zombie Entity.

    So I opened the xref, ran an Audit and found 903 errors.
    I deleted hundreds of layer filters and Purged 5 or 6 times to get rid of all the junk in the drawing. Reloaded the xref but still could not Refedit. I ended up just opening the xref and editing directly.

    Has anyone else ever encountered these Zombie Entities? This was a first for me.

    Found this explanation at the discussion forums for AcDbZombieEntity:

    "That's an ancient (R13) name for a proxy object."

    Not to be confused with AC/DC which was a zombie-like rock band.

    I don't know what band you're thinking of but there's nothing zombie-like about the still vibrant Aussie band AC/DC.
