Save Objects to Source Drawings dialog box
 
 
 

Use this dialog box to save the objects that are currently in the save set back to source drawings.

To save queried objects back to attached source drawings

Click Home tabData panel Save To Source. At the Command prompt, enter adesaveobjs.

If you are saving new objects, specify the source drawings to save objects to and the method used to save objects. Queried objects are saved back to their original layer in their original source drawing.

You must have Edit Drawing privileges to save objects to source drawings. See the User Administration dialog box.

Status area

View the number of queried objects and the number of newly created objects that are in the save set.

Save Queried Objects

Save queried objects to source drawings. Queried objects are saved back to their original layer in their original source drawing.

If you have redefined a block, layer, or text style definition and you want to save the new definition, be sure the option to save the definition is selected on the Save Back tab of the AutoCAD Map Options dialog box.

Save Newly Created Objects

Save objects created in the current drawing to source drawings.

Under Save Order For Newly Created Objects, specify the source drawings to save objects to and the method used to save objects.

Save Order for Newly Created Objects

Specify the method to use when saving objects created in the current drawing. Objects are saved by the first method that applies to them.

Area

Save objects to the first source drawing in the list within whose boundary they lie. This is useful for tiled drawings. This method does not save objects outside the boundary of the source drawings.

You can specify the drawing boundary by setting save back extents in the Drawing Settings dialog box. If no save back extents are set, the drawing extents are used as the boundary. If an object lies partially outside the save back extents, the drawing extents are modified to include the object, but the save back extents are not changed.

Layer

Save objects to the first source drawing in the list that includes a layer of the same name as the layer the object is on in the current drawing. This is useful for stacked drawings. This method does not save objects on layers in the current drawing that have no corresponding layer in the source drawings.

Selective

Specify which objects to save and which drawings to save them in. Objects are saved to the same layer as they are on in the current drawing. If the source drawing does not have a layer of the same name, one is created. This method applies to all objects, so you cannot specify other save back methods after this one.

Drawings to Save New Objects to list

Specify which drawings to save objects to. If you use the Selective method, AutoCAD Map 3D prompts for the objects to save to each selected drawing.

Select All

Highlight all drawings in the list.

Clear All

Remove the highlighting from all drawings in the list.

Filter

Turn on the current drawing filter.

When the filter is on, only drawings that match the filter are displayed. If the parent drawing of a nested drawing is filtered, the nested drawing is not displayed, even if it matches the filter.

To create or change the filter, click Filter. In the Drawing Set Display Filter dialog box, you can create separate filters for file names and descriptions.
