I work in a multi-layer map, which I want to make a copy of. At the moment my background map (x-ref in layer 0) is editable/possible to unlock, but I don´t want it to be in my copy. Basically, I just want it to use it as a background picture in my new map.
Thankful for all hints! / Göran
Solved! Go to Solution.
No way in AutoCAD alone. If you really want this, you must use something like CADlock. You can make your background into a pdf and attach that but it won't be a drawing anymore.

But you could also plot that background out as a DWF and underlay that. It also won't be an editable drawing file anymore but will respond like one more than a PDF will.
