Xref reloading problem

421 Views, 3 Replies

Hi, all. Every time I reload the xref, regenerating the drawing or plot my details, I need to wait a long while. I have a plan (dwg) and the details (dwg) where I xrefed the plan 6 times. Everythig is purged and audited. i thought this is a good way to work. Does anybody has some tips how to manage with xrefs. Thank you.

Just an idea :

Open ALL yours XREFs

SCALELISTEDIT Command and erase/kill  ALL  Annotation Scales you can !

Resave your DWG ...

Reload your Main DWG, is it faster ?

You have the plan xref'd 6 times into the details dwg? 

I'd suggest using just one instance of the xref, use vplayer contols and maybe annotative objects.

Run recover on all your xrefs and -Purge and delete all regapps. If a drawing, that is being used as an xref, has problems it brings those problems with it when you attach it.
