Summary: Ability to select whether the model or a layout displays when a file is XREF'ed in.

Description: I would like AutoCAD to allow you to make a selection of whether to display the Model view or a Layout view when you xref a file in. If there are Layouts in the xref file, AutoCAD would prompt the user to select either the Model view, or one of the Layout views to attach to the current file.

How Used: Layouts could be created in the xref file with special labeling, scaling, and selected layers on/off. Then you would not have to "play" with the xref elements in the base file to get it to look like what you want.

Feature Affinity: XREF
