I've been looking in the last topics for something about how to add new blocks to the Marker Styles from the Multipurpose Styles Collection, and found nothing. I know how to edit the styles but the blocks available in the Block Id list are not enough.
The block id lists are dynamic and display the names of all the blocks in
the current drawing. If you need an addition block, first make the block
using the standard AutoCAD "block" command, or bring in a block from disk or
another drawing. After you're done, the new block will display in the
In support of this suggestion, relying on having blocks in the drawing which
may or may not get used (and, quite likely, could get purged before being
wanted) seems to create an unnecessary overhead to Civil 3D.

Which at the end of the day leads us back to REALLY wanting a C3D file
that we CMs could use to drive styles, etc. It should be part of the
project structure to allow styles to be selected from the project....
