Free XREF Load Status Lite v4.0 – Load or Unload References Prior to Opening Drawings

From the Autodesk App Store:

This app allows for loading/unloading references in selected drawing files prior to fully opening the file. When working many references or large references, this app will come in handy allowing the user to select the desired drawing they wish to open, selecting reload or unload checkboxes, check the desired references to be modified, then click Save and Open.

The app opens the selected drawing database, makes the modification to the selected references, and saves the drawing database, then opens the file for use.

Additionally, the app will provide information for references that are unavailable for modification (ie: nested references, files not found, or unreferenced). With nested references, there is a checkbox that allows for tracking the nested reference to determine what the parent drawing file is. Lite version only support a total of 5 references and 1 nested reference tracking, per drawing including file types DWG, JPG, SID, TIF, DWF, PDF, and DGN.

Full version has support for unlimited references and unlimited nested reference tracking, including file types DWG, JPG, SID, TIF, DWF, PDF, and DGN.

Initial dialog.
