I have several drawings that I have clipped the xref using xclip where the xref is an OVERLAY. No matter what setting I have the xclipframe set to, the boundary is showing up in other drawings where others are xref'ing my drawings into theirs. They are using either base AutoCAD 2011, or Mech 2013.
The frame doesn't plot but it is causing people some problems as many people in our office are very new to multidiscipline projects and using xref's. Confusion regarding a boundary isn't helping me sell the point of using xref's. I CAN turn off all the boundaries where my files have been xref'ed into by changing the xclipframe variable to zero - but that isn't the problem. The problem is why is this boundary even showing up when the original dwg has the xref as an overlay (and not attached).
If you are confused -
I have a topo drawing.
I xref another file (as an overlay) that has the building into it - that has text and other things that needs to be clipped out so I use xclip.
I save the file-topo, with the xref 'building' in it.
Someone else xref's the file topo into their drawing and now have a boundary line showing, which they have no idea what it is for, nor why is it there, how do they get rid of it.
Besides turning off the clipping frames - anyone else know why this is happening? This didn't happen in civ3d 2012, and now it does for '13?
