How can I exchange to reference file using it's logical name?
the "dx=;dx=" selects the active view to confirm the exchange.
I have found a v7 reference file which shows in the Ref Dialog box the Display, Snap and Locate toggles as inverted commas ' " '. Why does this happen?
The quote marks indicate that the reference is redundant with another reference, meaning that it is a nested reference, but the position, scale, rotation, and clipping are all the same as another reference that is somewhere else in the reference hierarchy.

Is it possible to turn on level symbology for a reference only? In other words, I want to be able to work in the design file with level symbology off but have the reference file displayed with level symbology on.
Open the Level Manager; click on the active file; right click in the window with the level names and numbers and choose "Select All" from the right-click menu; right click again and choose "Properties" from the right-click menu; at the bottom of the Properties dialog, set the Symbology overrides to "Off" and click "OK". Symbology is now off for the active file.
