Everytime that I open a new drawing which has clipped XRefs, the Xclipframe is set to the number 2, and I set it back to number "0", but then when I finish that drawing and open another drawimng, then the new drawing reverts back to Xclipframe 2.
How or where I can change the setting to the default is always "0"?
Thanks in advance.
>> How or where I can change the setting to the default is always "0"?
Looking to the help (>>>details<<<) you can see that the variable is stored in the drawing. So if you want to have the setting of 0 in a new drawing you have to modify your template you use as default. Make a new file, change the setting, do a SAVEAS and chose the filetype "Template".
Then you can do _NEW and chose this template or you can run the command _OPTIONS assign this template-name to be used for command _QNEW. (>>>details<<<)

I think you mean that you want every drawing that you open to have the XCLIPFRAME variable set to zero, and not just new dwg files.
To do that, copy the attached .lsp file to your system.
Enter the APPLOAD command
Click the Startup Suite icon on the Load/Unload Application dialog box that opens
In the Startup Suite dialog box, click the Add button then navigate to the file you copied then click Open.
Close the other two dialog boxes.
Now, every time you open a dwg file, the XCLIPFRAME variable will be set to zero.
Hope this helps.
This setting is stored in the dwg-file. But we als had this problem in a few drawings.We noticed that the setting will be 'forgotten' in the dwg-file when it is opened (and saved) in an older version of AutoCAD.
So for instance we make the setting in Acad2011 and later edit the drawing in Acad2000, then the setting is gone...

No comment to "why sysvar are not save if you open it with a software from the last century"
You did not realy estimate that this should work, did you?

Haha No ofcourse not! But it is something you don't really think about when it happens to you.
We had a colleague complaining about this. He was temporarily working at another company. And every day he would run in to the same problem. So I told him about this, and it turned out that every evening the boss from that other company would open a few drawings to check things. The boss only had an old Acad version, and autosave set to 5 minutes.....

Really? Autosave overwrote the original file?
Usually it saves to a temp file with the extensions of dotAC$ (IIRC) in a temp dir off of your profile dir.
