i've been editing an xref (edit-in-place), and have used teh "add to working set" function. when i go to save the changes, i get the error: "Cannot save back changes because objects in teh working set reference objects outisde of the working set. The Refedit session is still active. Press F2 after dismissing teh dialog to see the listof missing references."
the text window says: "Errors found in references to other objects:
** Object reference missing: AcDbDimAssoc, to AcDbBlockReference."
if i discard the changes, then i lose my work, but i can't copy while in an refedit.
this is beyond annoying because it happens all the time.
any suggestions on how to get around this (other than editing the xref by itself - if they provide a "add to working set" tool it needs to work!)
The file is corrupt. Simply open a new template. Copy and paste your dwg/object (not blocked) and make a new block. Go back to your original dwg x-plode the corrupted block and purge so you won't convert to the old block if you name the new block the same.
You are refediting something that is still open (somewhere) which was modified and hasn't been saved or closed.
I think same way...
create new sheet, purge all, copy and paste, purge all again... qsave file and override existing file.
Re-Xref in. Should work.
Detach all xref...Purge all.......... Re-attached.
Sorry, if it not work, May be i have to sit and play which your files.
This is a slightly silly way of doing it... but it avoided me having to re-do anything that I already drew in my refedit... I just too EVERYTHING from the block/xref and took it out of that layer onto the main drawing.
it then saved the reference perfectly fine. after I just re-blocked everything and re-saved the original file.
It's a bit of a round-about way of doing things but at least I didn't lose anywork...
One of the reason is the dimmensioning and using leader(with arrow?). Remove any dimmensioning or leader(usally arrow?). It will let you save the file and get out of the xref.
