XREF Insert
« on: February 01, 2011, 03:24:46 PM »
 Does anyone know of a command that would create a layer of and xref's drawing name appon attaching the xref.
Then move that xref to that layer.


Attach xref "x-proposed.dwg"
Create Layer "x-proposed"
Move x-proposed xref to x-proposed layer.

Do a search for xref reactors. There are a couple of that will do what you want. There are some here but I am heading out the door and have already shut down. 
I + XI = X is true ...  ... if you change your perspective.

I no longer CAD or Model, I just hang out here picking up the empties beer cans
