The XRef Merge dialog lets you choose which objects to add as XRef objects to the scene. This behaves similarly to the Merge command. Controls on this dialog are similar to those on the Selection Floater.

The Merge dialog lets you load and save influences with or without their dependents. In many cases, objects should be referenced with their influences, but the display only makes you aware of the relationships, it does not force you to externally reference them.

When you select an item in the list window and click Influences, the object’s influences are selected in the list window. When you select an item in the list window and Display Influences is on, the object’s influences are shown in blue in the list window. When you select an item in the list window and Select Influences is on, the object’s influences are also selected in the list window.
