Saving Objects to a New Drawing
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

To save objects to a new drawing

  1. Run a query to retrieve the objects. Use Draw mode to copy the retrieved objects to the current drawing.
  2. Click Save As AutoCAD Drawing.
  3. Enter a name for the new drawing.
  4. If prompted to save objects to attached source drawings, do not do so at this time, since this removes them from the current drawing.

To save the objects to both a new drawing and to attached drawings, first clear Erase Saved Back Objects on the Save Back tab of the AutoCAD Map Options dialog box.
