Not sure what is going on and need some help. We have a large project that we converted from 2012 to 2013 - it had always been a little buggy in 2012 as it was a piece together from another consultant. Now though, it is extremely slow and there seems to be a 'block reference' around every block in the drawing. You can drag your select window and they all pop up like crazy and slow things down immensely (see screen capture). You can select them individually, they have nodes on all 4 corners and to move them, scales your block up and down. I tried block replace to our blocks which we know are fine and same problem. It also seems to be drawing specific although audit is clean.
Any idea what it is and how to remove/fix it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just a WAG, I'd say its an annotative block with multiple scales associated with the insert. When highlighted, all of the different scaled versions will preview as well.
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
Adopt. Adapt. Overcome. Or be overcome.
That was our assumption originally, but no annotative scales involved. Even something as simple as two lines and a circle (power pole).
Under the General Forums there's a File Attachments group that may allow larger files, though I don't know what the limit is. http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/File-Attachments/bd-

Please mark this as the solution if it resolves your issue.
Or, create a copy of the drawing and erase purge out all but a few of these objects, then save it. We don't need the whiole thing, just something that exhibits the behavior you are seeing.

The tree blocks have all been XCLIPped. Issue the XCLIP command, select all the blocks (can preselect with SelectSimilar), then Delete the Xclips.
that was the answer - awesome. Thanks much - now question being, why would blocks be xclipped like that and does it have any relationship to xrefs? As said, we received the information from another consultant, so no idea what they may have done.
