||A problem started to happen in Revit 2015 with linked AutoCAD dwg files with xrefs contained within as overlays. The overlays intermittently re-appear and behave as an 'attached' xref not an 'overlay' xref. This is not normal behavior as xref overylays should not be showing in a Revit link. A work around solution is to unload the xref, save the file, then reload the xref and continue working.
I have created a simple LISP command to do all of this quickly.
