Opening external references

From the Xref Manager you can quickly open the source drawing for any external reference. This is especially helpful if you are working with nested external references, which you cannot bind or detach. From the Xref Manager, open the source drawing, make changes, and then save and close the source drawing. When the Xref Manager displays again, simply reload the external reference.

To open external references

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > Xref Manager.
    • On the Tools toolbar, click the Xref Manager tool ().
    • Type xrm and then press Enter.
  2. Select the external reference to open.
  3. Click Open.
