5. All XREFs shall be overlayed, not attached.
« Reply #30 on: July 02, 2004, 09:47:06 AM »
We don't use xref's in our business but I
recieved about 20 drawings from a client who does.
The did not send the xref's with the files and it took
about a week to get a hold of somebody over there
who new what I was talking about and could send me
the xref files. So in short I guess I'm not a big fan of
them at this point.

They are both useful, but you have to think about what needs to convey and what needs to be dropped from ref 2 ref.

Which is why we use attach...there's no problem with "do we need this later on?"   Place each xref on its own distinct layer, then if it's not pertinant to the particular dwg, freeze it!  This works especially well in multiple vports. You can display all or part of an xref in one vport and freeze it in the others........works GREAT here............

That's not a problem with the tool, but with the goober using it.  Geez, XREF has been around for 10 years, isn't it about time everybody know what to do with them?  And ETRANSMIT makes it so bleeding easy.

Why must everyone avoind ETRANSMIT like it is the plague ...

If everyone would simply send all of the required files, then there would be no problems with missing xrefs, text styles etc.

IMO that's a flaw in the workflow, not the technology. You may in time appreciate the benefits xrefs represent when properly administered. Like most things, keep an open mind, just don't let the grey stuff spill out. :)
