Copy Named Objects from Xrefs
In this tip, Kate Morrical teaches us about the xbind command for Xref….
But what if you just want to grab a dimension style (not a dimension object) from an xref? Try a much older command: XBIND!
XBIND (which is not the same as Please Login or Register to see the link.) is most easily available at the command line. It lets you import named objects—layers, dimensions styles, text styles, blocks, linetypes—from a referenced DWG into the current file.
Bound items bring in their drawing prefix; the layer imported above would become “MapBuildings$0$_EDIFICIOS”. If you want to get rid of that, you can always use the Please Login or Register to see the link. command.
