About Viewing Underlay Information

About Viewing Underlay Information

You can view file-specific information about the underlays that are attached to a
drawing in the External References palette. You can also load and unload underlays
and perform other operations there.

In the External References palette, you can view underlay information either as a
list or as a tree. To control how the information is displayed in the External References
palette, click the List View or Tree View button in the upper-right corner. The list
view displays the name of each underlay in the drawing, its loading status, file size,
date last modified, and search path. The tree view lists the underlays in a hierarchy
that shows their nesting level within xrefs and blocks. The status, size, and other
information are not displayed in the tree view.

In either view, you can display information about an underlay; attach or detach the
underlay; unload or reload the underlay; and browse for and save a new search path.

Use the List View

The list view displays all underlays attached to the current drawing, but it does
not specify the number of instances. It is the default view. You can sort underlays
by category by clicking the column heading. Change the width of a column by dragging
its border to the right or left.

The following information is displayed in the list view:

  • Name of DWF, DWFx, PDF, or DGN file
  • Status (loaded, unloaded, or not found)
  • File size
  • File type
  • Date and time file was last saved
  • Name of the saved path

If the program cannot find an underlay, its status is listed as Not Found. If the
underlay is unreferenced, no instances are attached for the underlay. If the underlay
is not loaded, its status is Unloaded. Underlays with a status of Unloaded or Not
Found are not displayed in the drawing.

Use the Tree View

The top level of the tree view lists DWF, DWFx, PDF, and DGN files in alphabetical
order. In most cases an underlay file is linked directly to the drawing and listed
at the top level. However, if an xref or a block contains an attached underlay, additional
levels are displayed.
