Managing Xrefs

The advantage of using xrefs is that they provide the capability to create composite drawings that have relatively small file sizes and are easily updated. Unfortunately, on large projects involving multiple disciplines, keeping track of xref drawings can be difficult. Proper xref management is critical to ensure that composite drawings can find the latest versions of xrefs on standalone stations or over networks. Features available in AutoCAD can make managing xrefs easier.

The Xref Manager

The Xref Manager makes the task of managing xrefs easier. The dialog box’s diagrams and intuitive button commands are great visual aids, as is its display of such pertinent data as the xref’s name and path, current load status, whether the xref is attached or overlayed, and the xref’s file size and last modification date.
