UCS roated in Block Editor?

I am working with 2013 in 2D


Somehow I switched my UCS without noticing from X,Y,X to Z,Y,X. Though the UCS was changed my layout never switched orientation (flat square remained flat square and did not turn into a line).


I was alerted to the error when inserting the blocks. Half of the blocks were showing up as thin lines (in the Z plane) and half where showing up in the X plane.


I was able to correct the UCS by typing UCS, world view, then PLAN, current.


My question now: How can I fix the blocks that where "created" in the Z plane so that they can be inserted into the X plane without having to 'rotate3d' every time I insert a block??

You might have to edit the block itself and 3drotate just once.
