when i copy paste another persons drawing into mine,all the xrefs get placed well away from the the original drawing.
how can i bring someone elses drawing into mine?
Solved! Go to Solution.
When you open a new drawing to paste the other drawing, right click on the drawing space and select Clipboard > Paste to Original Coordinates.
If you are actually inserting or externally referencing a drawing and things are not matching up, perhaps the Insertion Base Point is not consistent between the drawings. Use the BASE command to check the Insertion Base Point of the different drawings. If they are not the same coordinate value, then you either need to change the insertion base points to be consistent, or take this into account when inserting or attaching the external reference. You probably do not want to change the insertion base point in the external references if other drawings are also using those xrefs.
thx for replying but that still does the same thing. these steps ive been diong works on all other drawings i paste but these two i cant get it to work. its like its currupt drawings but other people have used them and it works.
