Xref Manager Saving State List

169 Views, 2 Replies

We have a procedure of detaching Xref's from any drawing on our project to minimize Navisworks load time.

 

Is there a way to save a list of xref’s that are in your drawing so the next time I go back to that drawing I can just pick on the saved list and it will pull up all those xref’s??

 

We load a composite of over 2000 models.  The drawings that contain xref's in them increase load time so we have to detach all xref's from the drawings before we save to minimize this load time.

 

Thanks in advance

If you ever expect to need an xref again in the target drawing, unload it rather than detach it.  Unloaded xrefs should not affect network traffic.
