Frequent contributor Matt Sibum is back with a nice set of xref display–related commands. There are five shortcuts for unloading, reloading, and isolating xrefs in AutoCAD. Start by loading the LISP file; the five shortcut routines work as described below.
- RX reloads all xrefs.
- UX unloads all xrefs.
- XI allows you to isolate selected xrefs.
- XU unloads selected xrefs
- XD will detach selected xrefs. Because detaching xrefs is potentially destructive, the XD routine includes a warning.
Load this routine at startup, and these key shortcuts should make working with xrefs easier for you.
