When I insert an xref or self-xref all I am seeing is the clip cube. I have checked display and program functions and cannot seem to get the xref to show. The active layer is not locked. I have never had this issue. What do I have to do to get it to show?

Hi Gary, I may be wrong, but I don't think we can see the entire XRef / Self Reference during insertion. It shows the extents box, and inserts by the center. The work around is to place it, and then snap to move it a specific distance.

I think that some / many XRefs would just be too big to show smoothly.

If you are seeing the clip cube Ctrl-rt click on the clip cube box, xref tools, xclip and F1 turn off clip cube. Then the entire xref should show.
