Partial Open Dialog Box

    Partial Open Dialog Box

    Displays the drawing views and layers available for specifying what geometry to load
    into the selected drawing.

    When working with large drawing files, you can select the minimal amount of geometry
    you need to load when opening a drawing.

    When a drawing is partially open, all named objects, as well as the specified geometry,
    are loaded into the file. Named objects include blocks, dimension styles, layers,
    layouts, linetypes, text styles, UCSs, views, and viewport configurations.

    List of Options

    The following options are displayed.

    View Geometry to Load

    Displays the selected view and available views in the drawing. Only model space views
    are available for loading. You can load paper space geometry by loading the layer
    that the paper space geometry is drawn on.

    View Name

    Displays the currently selected view. Geometry that is common to both the selected
    view and the layers is loaded into the drawing.

    View List

    Displays all the model space views available in the selected drawing file. When a
    view is selected, only the geometry in the selected view is loaded.

    The default view is Extents. Geometry that is common to both the selected view and
    the layers is loaded into the drawing. You can load geometry from only one view.

    You can use the PARTIALOAD command to load additional geometry into a partially open
    drawing.

    NOTE:

    When a drawing is partially open, named objects are still loaded into the file along
    with the specified geometry from the selected view. All views are still available
    in the partially open drawing, but only geometry from the view specified to load is
    displayed in the drawing.

    Layer Geometry to Load

    Displays all the layers available in the selected drawing file. The geometry on selected
    layers is loaded into the drawing, including both model space and paper space geometry.

    The default loads no layer geometry into the drawing, but you can load geometry from
    one or more layers. If you specify to load no layer geometry into the drawing, no
    geometry from the selected view is loaded either because no layer geometry in that
    view or in the entire drawing is loaded. Xref-dependent layers are displayed in the
    Layer Geometry to Load list only if the selected drawing was last saved with the VISRETAIN
    system variable set to 1. Any layers created in the xref since the xref was loaded
    into the selected drawing are not displayed in the Layer Geometry to Load list.

    You can use the PARTIALOAD command to load additional geometry into a partially open
    drawing.

    NOTE:

    When a drawing is partially open, named objects are still loaded into the file along
    with the specified geometry from the selected layers. All layers are still available
    in the partially open drawing, but only geometry from the layers specified to load
    appears in the drawing.

    Layer Name

    Displays the layer names in the selected drawing.

    Load Geometry

    Loads geometry from the layer when the drawing is opened.

    Load All

    Loads geometry from all layers when the drawing is opened. You can right-click and
    use the shortcut menu to load geometry from all layers into the drawing.

    Clear All

    Loads no geometry from any layer when the drawing is opened. No geometry at all is
    loaded, including geometry specified to load from a view. You can right-click and
    use the shortcut menu to load no geometry into the drawing.

    Index Status

    Displays whether the selected drawing file contains a spatial or layer index. INDEXCTL
    controls whether layer and spatial indexes are saved with the drawing file.

    Use Spatial Index

    Controls whether a spatial index is used when partially opening a drawing. A spatial
    index can be used to locate what portion of the drawing is read; this minimizes the
    time required to open the drawing.

    Spatial Index

    Displays whether the selected drawing file contains an index that organizes objects
    based on their location in space.

    Layer Index

    Displays whether the selected drawing file contains a list of the objects that are
    on each layer. A layer index can be used to locate what portion of the drawing is
    read; this minimizes the time required to open the drawing.

    Unload All Xrefs on Open

    Unloads all external references when opening the drawing. Selecting this option enhances
    the opening process. If you partially open a drawing that contains a bound xref, only
    the portion of the xref that is loaded (defined by the selected view) is bound to
    the partially open drawing.

    Open

    Opens the drawing file, loading only combined geometry from the selected view and
    layers.
