    It's an old trick that gets around foreign or incorrect pathing. When AutoCAD cannot find the file by following the assigned path, it checks the folder containing the referencing file.

    Okeydoke, thanks. That explains why my paths are still mapped to the old folder right after I do a save as with the xrefs in both the old folder and the new one.
    The S197 gen Ford Mustang, and the F-4 Phantom both prove the same theory. "With enough power applied, a school bus will fly."
