XREF Transparency

Q. I am just starting to use AutoCAD 2011 after spending years using 2006. When I insert an XREF into my model space it shows up "grayed out". I am not doing anything different from the commands used in 2006... This would appear to be a new feature of 2011.  Is there a way to turn this on/off or adjust for the degree in which it is "grayed out"?
