Insert block that have xref attached


Recommended Posts

I have a main drawing that have an xrefs attached, I have three other drawings with the same xrefs. How do I insert the blocks without detaching the xrefs?




Main.dwg [xrefs: 1flpln, 1light] (blocks: room_1, room_2, room_3)

Room_1.dwg [xrefs: 1flpln, 1light]

Room_2.dwg [xrefs: 1flpln, 1light]

Room_3.dwg [xrefs: 1flpln, 1light]


The problem is without detaching the xrefs in room 1,2, and 3; all the xrefs are re-attached even though ALL xrefs are overlayed.




Main.dwg [xrefs: 1flpln, 1light] (Blocks: room_1

[xrefs: 1flpln, 1light]


[xrefs: 1flpln, 1light]


[xrefs: 1flpln, 1light])


I'm sorry for the long post just trying to get the point across, blocks with xrefs attached brings multipule unwanted xrefs, need a way to fix without detaching ALL xrefs before hand... Thanks in advance.

I've never used XREFs within blocks. It just sounds like it would be wrought with problems. If I were you, I would change those blocks to be XREFs.
