Q - question

Fading xrefs in AutoCAD.

A - answer If you want to dim (fade) all drawing objects coming from attached Xrefs (both the model- and paperspace), set the XDWGFADECTL variable to a higher value.

And vice-versa: the zero or negative value of this variable displays the xref-layers (external references) in a normal standard way (not dimmed, faded, milky).
