Reload an xref by picking it on the screen.

When working in AutoCAD, you will sometimes want to operate on an object without stopping to query the object for its layer, name, or other property. This routine by Leland Leahy enables you to reload an xref by simply picking it on the screen. Start by loading the LISP file. There are two command options: UX will prompt you to pick the xref and then reload it. UX2 works in the same way, except that is sets VisRetain to 0 before reloading the xref, then sets it back to 1 at the end. VisRetain controls the properties of xref-dependent layers.
