Proxy Object Rollout
 
 
 
Bottom of the Page

Select an XRef object. Modify panel Proxy Object rollout

When you've selected an XRef object in a scene, the Proxy Object rollout appears along with the XRef Object rollout on the Modify panel. Use these controls to specify a low-resolution object to replace the original XRef object for easier handling in the viewports, and optionally for test rendering.
