    Default Map Features from connected shp file not displaying in XREF

    This has been an intermittent issue since the birth of FDO Work arounds are not acceptable .. If a dwg with FDO connections is XREFed into a host dwg and or used with sheet set manager the Map features do not display at all.

    Xref and SSM are both vanilla Autocad features, don't expect Map3D features like FDO to work with them. If you want the same data displayed in multiple dwgs/maps then save the FDO connection to a layer (.layer) file and drag/drop it into any dwg that you want it in the same as a xref. That's the method designed to work with Map3D.

    I have always just saved out the dwg as vanilla acad then use that in ssm It worked but adds to work flow. the .layer drag n drop is better And I thank You

    Yes as long as you saved the changes to the layer file.
