DISREGARD - Snap to Referenced Object

Recommended Posts

** EDIT ** Figured it out.  Can't seem to figure out how to delete this post, however.


Hi all,


My references are working nicely - I reference the layers I want, and they show up with their classes in tow.


BUT! I can't seem to snap to objects on those referenced layers without activating them. I do have "Show/Snap/Modify Others" set for both classes and layers.


What have I done wrong, please?

Usually I would always have Show/Snap/Modify Others set for classes. For DLs I change as required and the only time I set Show/Snap/Modify Others for DLs is if I forget what layer something is on (so I change the layer option click it and check the OIP). I have found it too risky to have it set for DLs and also impractical.


I am sure others work differently just the way I do things

Thanks barkest, I'd set it that way just to make absolutely sure that wasn't the problem. 


Turns out with all my referencing a templating I'd set one layer scale wrong.  Silly mistake:)
