I have been attaching dwg files as XREF's, MODIFYING (deleting, extending...) them and saving (with out reloading them). But I noticed for the first time, if I exit ArchiCad after the first time attaching them and coming back to ArchiCad the XREF's become not editable! any work around or I am missing a point?
the golden rule of XREFs according to archiben frost:
NEVER, EVER EDIT/MODIFY/WHATEVER REFERRENCED FILES FROM THE HOST PROJECT!
i personally wish that archiCAD would lock out all
attributes from hotlinked/xref'ed files until otherwised officially merged into the host project file.
of course, having the sketch-up-like ability to go into a hotlink/xref
as a separate file but within the same archiCAD session
to edit it would be nice.
