You need to provide more information or sample drawing.


But I will give a brief explantion of what I believe your asking.


If your main/top level drawing has X-refs attached to it, when you click on an item which is on the X-Ref, the whole X-Ref drawing is opened as a block in the main/top drawing.


If you are trying to modify a block which is located in the X-ref, it is much easier to open the X-Ref (drawing) by itself and moidfy the block directly within the X-Ref.
