our drawings contain on average probably about 30 xrefs with nested xrefs in them. i.e. we created
a detail drawing (file A) - lets say a window detail -
which is brought in as an attached xref into
a GA drawing of only that detail (file B) - like an outline of that detail which can be used like a block (but is a xref) -
and this one again will be attached as an xref to the final GA drawing (file C)!
the problem is, that by drawing more and more details and outlines this slows down our main GA to a point where we can hardly turn off any xrefs within the drawings because the cursor stops before you even get over the xref manager.
we purged almost all the drawings and it still happens.
are we going over the top with efficiency in terms of xrefs? does autocad go crazy if there is too many xrefs in there? or is there another way of making it work smoothly again?
many thanks for any comments
