  1. Has anyone experience this or know why this happens? dwg A is x-refed to dwg B. am working on dwg B & click on x-ref and go into Edit reference in place. if I now click on > any object and go into properties & change the color from bylayer to red (for example) and save changes. -everything works fine and when i come out - the drawing B display red colour. -which is ok > however if i click on x-ref and go into Edit reference in place.if I now click on a layer and change its colour from pink to red. all the objects change colour to red. but when i save changes and come out to DWG B the colour of layer donot chage ,, stays pink (Visretain =1 , but i don't think its to do with that)
  2. 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 XRefs were no longer attached, loaded or referenced. Every time I open a drawing now, most of the XRef files have a status of Unloaded, Unreferenced or Not Found. The Loaded and Attached XRef files change when I close the drawing and open it again. The Path is saved correctly for most of the missing XRef drawings, but when I use the drop down "Found At" field to apply the path again, it still does not find the drawings. A few of the XRef files have no path at all. I have also tried to Attach the file again instead of updating the path, but it does not create a new XRef and when I open each drawing again, the same thing happens. I have updated the path for the Unloaded XRef files and they reload successfully, but when I save and open the drawing again, they are Unloaded again or sometimes Not Found. I have gotten to the point of opening the actual drawing of the XRef and copying into my current drawing just to not deal with the issue because I have to get things done and make progress. I need a lot of help to solve this because I have 14 more floors in this building and I cannot temporarily fix each one. Thank you in advance to everyone who helps. I truly appreciate it. Have a great day.
  3. Hello, I am working on a massive project with many x-refs. We are using an STB, along with layer states for line weights. We are plotting from a sheet file, where our, and consultants' drawings, are x-reffed in. If we apply the layer state in the SHEET file, we will need to know all layers of our consultants. If we apply the layer state in the MODEL file, we will need vis-retain set to 0, and therefore we will need to redefine all of the layers of the x-ref to print grey every time we plot. Is there a way to work around this? Can you apply plot styles around different sheets more efficiently? Can you set an STB to look at the prefix of layers (ie. every layer starting with XXX, or every layer from a certain x-ref) be a certain plot style (ie. 60% grey)? Thanks, robyn
  4. Hi...having some trouble with a group of files I received from someone working for me and was wondering if someone can help me. I have a file that is x-reffed into another file. In both instances the drawing has the same measurements, but when I make a viewport in the receiving file the drawing (in the viewport) is 1000x smaller than it should be. It should be noted that I am working in metric units AutoCAD 2011. Any responses would be greatly appreciated. And if you know this to be a simple fix, please help me to understand. Thanks.
  5. Hi all, Im having some problems with a file im working on. I have a file with an x-ref, when im in the model space i can see all layers i want to see, but in the viewports i created in the file i noticed that 2 layers(layers that i really need to see) dont show up. Ive checked the freeze/thaw, on/off, plot/no plot settings, layerstate, i tryed creating a new layer in the x-ref file(the parent file) and putting these things that dont show in the new layer but nothing changes. ive spent alot of time trying to figure this out but im out of ideas, ill attach two images to help you see the layer settings. Hope the images are good enough So, whats missing in the viewports is the cyan tex where it says "Klassisk sal"and some other text surrounding it and the cyan box with the text "Mko 12.002". The highlighted layers in the layer properties window are the associated with these items here is the layout, the layout is active and again the two highlighted layers are the ones associated with the objects missing can someone please help me before i go compleatly mental and put my fist through my computer screens. thx Hallur Pétursson Reykjavík, Iceland
  6. I want to delete Xref-dependent layer. AutoCAd says I can't delete them. I want to delete them. How can I do that?
  7. Every so often when others in the office and now, today, myself have been editing an x-ref in place it will not allow us to save the changes we have made. First when you try the dialogue box flashes up , as attachment. I press F2 to bring up the command line box and have copied the relevent lines below. Command: _refclose The following symbols will be permanently bound to the current drawing: Text Styles: $0$Arial Blocks: $0$_ArchTick Enter option [save/Discard reference changes] : _sav Regenerating model. Errors found in references to other objects: ** Object reference missing: AcDbBlockReference, to AcDbDimAssoc. Regenerating model. *Cancel* Any ideas how to work around this or correct it? Luckily on this occasion I was simply stretching a kitchen to fit a new layout but others have lost an hours work (I have no idea why they were in there for so long either:?)
