I xref a drawing into my current drawing, all layers are on and thawed and I can see the names of the Xref from the Layer Properties Manager,Xref Manager also confirmed the xref drawing is there and still can't see it. I gone as far as insert that Reference drawing into the current drawing at 0,0 and did scaled it up a million time bigger hope to see it but nothing. I know I'm not blind and been use Acad since R11, Is this a bug in Acad2000i ?? HELP.
p.s. Done checked Model Space and Pspace too.
Thanks all.

Are you XREFing a file that has an Xref Bind in it? What is the XREF file, and content? Are you multi-level Xrefing? -- Dean Saadallah Add-on products for LT http://www.pendean.com/lt --

chevy If your drawing you are xrefing, are the objects only in PaperSpace? Items in PS (layout) will not be seen, they must be in MS.

I will do one better than that. 10 years later and it was the complete answer to our problem of the invisible xref. ( And TOTALLY made a light bulb click on saying DUH!!! Of course the geometry of an xref file must reside in Model Space, other wise the xref is xrefing nothingness. Complete DUH moment.
