EDIT BLOCK ATTRIBUTE

583 Views, 4 Replies

I have two blocks in my drawing both with the same name but with different font styles. I have tried to set them both the same using BATTMAN but the text rotation changes or becomes mirrored in some.

 

Is there a way to do this maybe with a lisp. If so does anybody have one I could use.

 

Thanks.

ATTSYNC perhaps, not BATTMAN: explore it in HELP.

Thanks but ATTSYNC also appears to rotate or mirror the text. I have also played arround with BEDIT, BLOCK and -BLOCK but without sucess. I know that there are lisp routines for globally changing the attribute layer and colour etc does anyone have one for setting attribute text to the same font style for blocks with the same name blocks in a drawing.

Hold the CTRL key down and select the individual attributes that need changing. You can select all the attributes that need modifying and do them in one go.

 

Now all you do is go to the properties and change the setting you want, in this case it would be the text style.

Thanks Brad that does work and I think I have selected them all. Its just that its quite a busy drawing and the blocks have been pulled in from various other drawings to make a master and I was hoping for a lisp to make life easy for me. Many thanks.
