Refedit Saving

54 Views, 3 Replies

Our firm has upgraded some of our AutoCads to 2005, but not all. I therefore set mine up in options to save back to 2000 for use by others in the office. The problem is that whenever I refedit a file, and save changes, the file that was refedited saves as 2005 and we are forever calling out to each other to open the drawing and save it back to 2000.
Any ideas???

Don't use Refedit if you need to maintain the files in 2000. Set your xref loading to Enable with Copy. Then when you need to change something in the Xref open it as a file and use the saveback feature. Then reload it in your current drawing.

Thanks Allen,

Problem is that in some instances Refedit makes life easier when working across Xrefs. I know that we can set-up the xrefs as overlays in other drawings so we can refer to them but we shouldn't have to. Admittedly that is how we used to work back in the R14 days.

Thanks,

Paul
