Copy Multiple Objects out of Xrefs
If you want to copy a large group of objects out of an external reference (xref) and don't want to use the painful NCopy command that forces you to pick them one at a time, then you'll love this tip! Join Lynn Allen as she shows you the super-secret way to select as many objects as you want using standard selection set methods to make copies of objects found in xrefs for use in your current drawing. All done without disturbing the xref one little bit! Watch the video
