Hi All,

Well, the third serious problem that makes it difficult for us to use ZWCAD in our office..

We use xref's extensively, A problem that we have in ZWCAD but not LT is when multiple xref's have been attached to a file. and some of those xref's share a common xref file..

eg.. We commonly have

GRID file

PLAN LEVEL 1 file
PLAN LEVEL 2 file etc

both the plan files xref the GRID file

If I create a new file that xref's both PLAN files and later I decide to detach one plan,, not only does that disappear but so does the commonly shared GRID file, even though it was also attached in the other plan.

As you can imagine,, this causes nightmares in production...

Again,, can anyone help in work-arounds . bug fixes etc for this serious problem

thanks in anticipation

Dear Garyvn,

Thanks for your feedback, I tested as you said, and confirm that it is a problem. I have forward it to our R&D dept, and we will try to fix it ASAP.
