    Default Selecting Individual Layers Within XRefs

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello,

    I'm a fairly new AutoCAD user (AutoCAD 2012 version) so there's probably a very simple answer to this. I have a "Master" drawing with one xref inside. Im producing drawings (layouts) from this master dwg file. Im trying to freeze individual layers within the xref, I can do this by using the Layer properties manager "VP freeze" column, this is very slow. What I would like to do is select an individual layer of the xref within the viewport and freeze it using the layer dropdown list at the top, however when I click one of the layers within the xref all the layers within the xref become selected.

    How can I select individual layers within the xref?????

    Thanks

    Use the Freeze Layer button and select an object in the XREF on the layer that you want frozen.
    Drafting is a breeze.
