Randy, he wants to drag the container, not the contents.

What kind of problems would be exhibited if he changed the owner of the window? Would the new owner assume the message handling, thus effectively moving the drawing from one session to another?

I have never tried this, but I know you can change the window owner ... maybe I'll give it a try and see what kind of problems occur.

That would be great Keith! Let me know how it turns out!

my thinking may be MILES off on this one (it usually is) but when you close a drawing it writes it to the History list?
Can you not just create 2 buttons..

1-Save and Close (in the working drawing session)
2-Open last saved drawing to history list? (in reference session)

Someone may have the expertise to link the 2 buttons together??

yes/no?

I thought i seen the light at the end of the tunnel. But it was just someone with a torch bringing me more work.

This is basically what I have it doing now. I didn't know how to do it any other way.

Just curious here.  What's the advantage of running separate sessions over opening the files in the same session?  With dual monitors speading the one session over both, it seems relatively simple (to me anyway) to just DnD the drawing windows where you want 'em.

If I was going to do that I would just have one big monitor. But I also reference Excel, APV, Visual Enterprise among other programs while creating drawings. So if I just have one session of AutoCAD stretched across both monitors it makes it harder to look at other programs while working in AutoCAD.

Just thought I would check in & see if it was worth trying!
