AutoCAD Tip – A Better Way to Copy Objects within Xrefs

13 Sep, 2011

The NCopy command is a great way to copy objects from within xrefs — but you have to select the objects one at a time! Who has time for that? Join Lynn Allen as she shows you how you can use standard object selection modes such as Crossing Window and Fence to make copies of xref objects without modifying the original xref drawing file. (Available in standard AutoCAD since 2004.)
