    Default Acad2013 / Plant 3d 2013 clipped xrefs

    In plant 3D, we have 2d xrefs, which I have clipped and the xclipframe set to 0 so that I cannot see them. However, when I select objects using a window crossing, the xref(s) get selected, too, and it's making me crazy. Is this something new in 2013, and if so, WHY?? 'Cause in '10 this doesnt' happen, and i don't think it happens in '12. ( we don't have acad 2013 here...) I use acad 2013 at home and have not encountered this aggrivating problem.
    any advice is helpful and appreciated.
    Before you criticize someone, you
    should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a
    mile away and you have their shoes.

    These go to 11

    It was evidently introduced in AutoCAD 2012.

    I really ywish AutoCAD would stop "introducing" stuff that jacks things up...What's the point??? I guess I should go back to the CWC Blowing Off Steam thread...
    Thanks

    If they don't, then users will complain that they aren't getting anything for their money. Pitchforks if they do, torches if they don't. Frankensteins choice if you will.
    If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
    Some say beauty is in the eye of the Beholder... perhaps so, but I've only seen the disintegration beam.
    Everyone else being wrong is not the same thing as being right.
