I am using Autocad Electrical and I have an attribute name INST for the installation code in multiple blocks in my drawings. Is there a command out there that can change the font of just that attribute to Arial through out the drawing. I do not want to change any of the other attributes and they all use the same style.
Solved! Go to Solution.
How would you use Battman to change multiple blocks at the same time. I tried to select several first then go into the command unfortunately it only selects one Block. I have multiple blocks on each drawing with the same INST attribute.
I did not realize from your post this was the same exact attribute tag in ALL or many blocks in your file. You will need to dive into more customizing with Lisp unless someone has a freeware to do what you seek.
While you wait here consider also posting in the Customization Discussion area:
Please excuse my possible ignorance (I may be misunderstanding the problem), but can't you just edit the attribute in Block Editor? Then it would redefine all the blocks in the dwg.
That's for one block at a time, the OP seems to be indicating all his blocks (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and so on if these were block names) all have this one common shared attribute name and they do not wish to edit each block separately in each DWG file.
That is the case I do have multiple blocks with the same attribute name that I want to change the font on. I have received a solution to my posting in the posting I put on the Autocad Electrica forum. Pat Muren created a custom lisp file and script that worked like a charm.

Thank you for assistance.
