I have some drawings that were converted from DGN's. These drawings xref other converted dgns. Now when I return to plot a set that was complete, several of the xrefs that were loaded are listing as incompatible. I've opened up the xref files and they are not 2013 format. To fix the issue I only need to browse to the xref location and reselect the xref in question as if I am changing the path. Why is it listing as incompatible? It clearly should be. I'm now going thru 50 drawings and re-pathing to the same xref files several times in each drawing. What happened? Files were not relocated, folder names are have not changed. The xref file save date indicates it hasn't been touched in almost a year. What happened? why?
what happens if you try to start command _RECOVERALL instead of opening the drawing with _OPEN?
(before trying that I would backup the DWGs/DGNs to be sure to hold their original file-format)
Good luck, - alfred -
There is a separate program in the Autodaes folder in the START menu called Reference Manager which should be able to take away some of the pain of re-referencing all those drawings
