Hello, I had to update some drawings from AutoCAD 2007 and each of these drawings has at least 7 XRef files attached to it. Each of these files have about the same number of XRef files attached to them as well. These drawings keep going this way for about 3 more layers. I copied all of the CAD files together (125 dwg files) into a new folder. I am using AutoCAD LT 2012. I opened each file to make sure each drawing is intact. Each drawing opened perfectly. However, when I saved each drawing, closed it and then opened it again to start editing things in the Current drawing, some of the X

I applied a display theme to my DWG, and based on the value of the Property, different colours wil be displayed according to the display theme. For a single DWG file containing the building, I am able to simulate the colour changes by updating the “Value” Property in the Spaces using .NET APIs functions such as PropertySet.SetAt, and commiting the transasction. However, one building can consist o
