No can do... proxy objects are created automatically by any version of AutoCAD that cannot utilize custom objects defined by add-on packages such as LDD, ADT, MDT, and a whole host of other external applications.

Don't see it as ever happening!!
Toooo many specialized applications.

Work with Custom and Proxy Objects  

A custom object is a type of object created by an ObjectARX (AutoCAD run-time Extension) application, which typically has more specialized capabilities than standard AutoCAD objects. Custom objects include parametric solids (Autodesk Mechanical Desktop), intelligently interactive door symbols (Autodesk Architectural Desktop), polygon objects (Autodesk Map), and associative dimension objects (AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT).

In addition to Autodesk, many software vendors use ObjectARX to write programs that create graphical and nongraphical custom objects that are useful in their AutoCAD applications.

Proxy Objects
A proxy object is a substitute for a custom object when the ObjectARX application that created the custom object is not available to AutoCAD or other host applications. Later, when the application is available to AutoCAD, the proxy object is replaced by the custom object.

Proxy objects have significantly reduced capabilities compared to their corresponding custom objects. The extent to which proxy objects can be edited is determined by the parent ObjectARX application. For example, operations such as erasing and moving an object, or changing object properties may or may not be possible on a proxy object depending on the application that created it.

When you open a drawing, you might see a Proxy Information dialog box. The dialog box tells you the total number of proxy objects in the drawing (both graphical and nongraphical) and the name of the missing application and provides additional information about the proxy object type and display state. You can use the dialog box to control the display of proxy objects.

Object Enablers
An object enabler is a tool that provides specific viewing and standard editing access to a custom object in AutoCAD or other host applications when the ObjectARX application that created the custom object is not present.

Object Enablers allow custom objects in a drawing to behave with more intelligence than proxy graphics. Object enablers also facilitate workgroup collaboration when using AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, Volo View, and 3D Studio Max.

If the ObjectARX application is not installed on your system, AutoCAD can check for available Object Enablers on the Web. For example, if you receive a drawing that contains objects that were created in AutoCAD Architectural Desktop, but you don't have that application installed on your system, AutoCAD downloads the AEC Object Enabler so you can view those drawings as they were intended. To control whether AutoCAD checks for Object Enablers, use the Live Enabler settings on the System tab of the Options dialog box.

For a complete list of the currently available Object Enablers, go to the Autodesk Web site at

Object Classification
AutoCAD LT does not apply or change object classifications (also known as feature classifications), but if an application such as Autodesk Map was used to add a feature (object) classification to an object, you can view the classification in the Properties palette in the Class Name entry. If the object's classification is missing from the associated classification (XML) file, or if the associated classification file is missing, an exclamation mark is displayed in the Class Name entry. For information about what is required to create a feature classification, see the Autodesk Map documentation.

You can also use the Quick Select feature to select objects by their Class names and Class properties.

i never had a problem with proxy about object enabler?
