How Do I Make An Object In The Current Drawing Appear In The Xref Drawing?
They might sometimes feel cumbersome to work with, but xrefs are an excellent tool for organizing your drawings, and they can help maintain design consistancy when several people are working on the same layout. George Omura helps you make sense of xrefs in this AutoCAD Q&A.
In-place Editing Of Blocks And Xrefs
In AutoCAD 2002, you can edit blocks and external references (xrefs) in the host drawingÃ¢â‚¬â€the drawing in which you have inserted them. Previously, to modify a block created by inserting another drawing or an xref into the host drawing, you had to leave that drawing, open the original drawing of the block or xref, and edit it there. Then you had to update the block or xref in the host drawing.

Working With The External Reference Manager
An AutoCAD drawing file often references other filesÃ¢â‚¬â€such as other drawings (via the XREF functionality) as well as plot styles, images, standards, and font files associated with the drawing. The references, or dependencies, are simply an embedded record of the path to the referenced objects or files. Theses references and their relationships can, however, become quite complex as anyone who works with these types of drawings can attest.
