I am looking for a way to click on an element in an ex ref to shut it off.
LAYFRZ or LAYOFF commands are built-in and do that: just set them correctly (watch the command line).
Of are you trying to "hide" an object in an XREF instead?
I am trying to hide a layer in an xref.
Sorry, I did not state the question very well.
Either you have Autocad LT or you havn't installed Express Tools
Look for toolbar like this:
I have that toolbar, but they don't turn off an xref layer.
If it's a block, you should look at settings in the command line (like Dean had mentioned)
S(settings) B(block) choose Entities
I got it. Thanks for knocking me in the head a few times.
