xrefed cross sections

I have created a drawing called xsec. I xrefed the corridor drawing into it and data shortcuted the alignments in as well. I created sample lines and cut my cross sections in the drawing. Everything at this point looks fine.


The problem happens when I create a new drawing and xref the xsec into it. In this new drawing only the right side of my cross sections is showing up. I want to use this drawing for my sheetset rather than have a bunch of tabs in the xsec drawing.


Has anyone ever had this happen? Any help would be appreciated. BTW I am using Civil 3d 2012 w/ Update 1

Sorry, I have not experienced this. In your example I use the "xsec" drawing as my sheet drawing. The extra tabs are not an issue for me.
