    Drawing Savefidelity?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Try setting your SAVEFIDELITY to 0. Sounds easy and dangerous, but it just might work.

    Have you tried running Audit on the troublesome Xrefs?

    To clarify, the SAVEFIDELITY variable should have no effect on drawings unless you're using or coordinating with someone who uses a version that predates annotative objects (AutoCAD 2007 or earlier). The real culprit here might be annotative objects with too many scales defined, but changing this variable could solve that.

    Good catch, my apologies. Since I blew the first idea, I feel compelled to offer some more:
    Are there objects at crazy elevations?
    Are there curves or splines that are made up of a zillion vertices?
    Are there objects created by a more current version or a vertical product that were then saved back to 2004?

    It is a new file, created in house from a blank template, I use our standard tags, but nothing from the outside world has been added. I will see if I can figure out how to load it here.

    Yes, no change. 1 error was found, but no change to XREF response.

    Could it be a pathing problem? Or, could it be there is some element of the xref that AutoCAD is searching for in its attempt to load the drawing?

    Annotative objects...don't know what those are. Yikes...I know we are way far behind...small office, without the resources to stay at the leading edge.

    Everything is at 0. No curves or splines, we avoid splines like the plague...everything in the file was created by AutoCAD 2004 or older.
