References Within References

Not applicable
So, I have a number of referenced DWG files from other disciplines within my ArchiCAD project file, mainly in independent worksheets for easy tracing and reference generally.

However, there files originally had little logo JPG's, SHX files or other DWG's XRef'd in them.

Every time I 'Reserve All' ArchiCAD asks for these references. Is there a check box or option I can employ to stop this from happening? It's very annoying.

This can be specified only in the Attach XREF Dialog when the XREFs are originally attached.
However, the nested XREFs in the DWG file had to be overlaid the DWG, not attached for this to work. And then, you have to use the Overlay method when Attaching those DWGs.
So multiple conditions must be met.
Please see the table and explanation on this page:
