- Working with blocks

Redefining blocks

You can redefine all instances of a block within the current drawing. To redefine a block that was created in the current drawing, you create a new block using the same name. You can update all the blocks in the current drawing by redefining the block. If the block was inserted from a separate drawing file that was subsequently updated, reinsert that block to update all other instances in the current drawing.

To redefine a block in the current drawing
  1. Advanced experience level
  2. Do one of the following:
  3. Choose Draw > Block > Make...
  4. On the Draw toolbar, click the Create Block tool (
  5. ).
  • Type block and then press Enter.
  • Select from the list Name the block you want to redefine.
  • Specify the insertion point for the block.
  • Select the entities for the block, and then press Enter.
  • In the prompt box, choose OK to redefine the block.
  • The block is immediately redefined.
