Thanks for getting back to me. Since I have used XREF a lot I would like to give you more detailed feedback on the situation for your development department.
We have a complex instrument (a retinal camera) which requires many parts. At the moment we have 4 major assemblies. Each of these assemblies are just TCW files that contain XREFs to individual part drawings.
Problem arises when we want to combine these assemblies into a general assembly.
We can't just create a file that XREFs to these assemblies (which contain XREFs themselves). This is the situation that needs attention.
In the Pro 12 version I could work around this problem by saving each TCW assembly files in SAT format, which copied the actual objects (instead of referencing to them).
Then I could create a General Assembly file that XREFs to these SAT files.
In the Pro 15.2 version, this is not possible.
So I suggest the following:
1 - Capability of saving Files containing XREFs as stand-alone files with actual copies of the object (as in
2 - Capability to XREF drawings that themselves contain XREFs.
Hope to hear from you on these suggestions ..
