    After I’ve inserted a xref into a drawing I would like to change all of the the xref layers to the color 253. My problem is that not all of the layers change into 253.

    Is there a solution to this problem without making any changes to the original file (I don’t want to use SETBYLAYER in the original file)?

    Hi James.

    in Autodesk Autocad Forum, JGerth answer to this problem:

    at this point you’ll have to run SetbyLayer.  the ability to ignore property overrides has been an Augi wishlist item for a while.

    Best bet is to make a copy of the orignal Xref, and save it in the state it was received, and only modify the copy that you will use internally as a base.  (can also send pointed emails to whomever sent you the drawring)

    if you have any other problem, reply this post.
