Tip 2269: Xref Transfer
Ryan Wunderlich shares Xref Transfer, which collects all the external references in a current drawing and makes sure they are inserted on a layer of the same name as the external reference. Inserting the external references on a layer that is named to match the insert name is a drawing standard that Ryan uses in-house. This function also locks the layer, which further helps to block manipulations to the external reference. To use this tip, load the LISP code and type XFix. The rest is automatic. Of particular interest to LISP programmers is how the external references are located and manipulated in the drawing database. Thanks, Ryan!
