Edit Xref In-Place

I hope some one can help with this problem.

When saving an AutoCAD drawing there is a Thumbnail image saved (if you have the option turn on), but when the command "Edit Xref In-Place" is used there is no Thumbnail image saved. So now when I try to preview any drawing that has been edited through this command there is no longer a thumbnail.

I am using AutoCAD 2012 and the option to save a thumbnail is turned ON.

Thanks in advance for any help you might have.

 

Thanks,

Jeromey

short answer, Edit XREF in place does not save a thumbnail.  if that's important, use XOpen instead of RefEdit.

 

sorry buddy, that's just the way it works

I am confused by your answer.

Maybe my question was not so clear.

I am wondering if there is a way that "edit xref in-place" will create a thumbnail?

As of right now there is only a thumbnail created when I save a individual drawing but no thumbnail created using "edit xref in-place".
