Depends on what your goal is.
X-ref is quite different from Layer manager.
Most of times they are combined, working with multiple drawings, use x-ref,
to view the layers use layer manager.
So not really quite clear what you want.
I have used both, but not within complex architectural drawings. They were
floor plans for telecom installations. I used x-ref at one company (that was
before layer mgr was available) and then at the next company, we used layer
manager. We didn't need multi-views and I found the layer mgr much easier
In our architectural projects we use both extensivly in combination.
I do not see what advantage could be gained by only using Xrefs and
not the layer manager. Could you explain how that system worked?
