This may have nothing to do with it all, but OP would you like your layer list to not include XREF layers at some point? Make a layer filter called No XREFs using the following argument: ~*|*
Sorry for the late response. I tried fade setting at "100" and at "0". the xref names stayed the same. Non-xref layers have no problem.
At this time I am living with it. May be my old eyes are the cause..
