MEP 2012 Tool Palette

Please help me, I was trying to alter the standard blocks on the tool palette. I have no idea how I messed everything up but I basically have two huge problems now.


1. I am missing the necessary default blocks that should be under my edit block directory.....all the Aecb files.

2. Now when I try and put in a receptacle or any other standard block a triangle with an exclamation point shows up upon insertion.


Please help me get everything back to normal.


Thank you,

Sinan Najm


I attached a picture of the "edit block definition" and the troubled smybols. Any and all help would be hugely appreciated.

If you have modified the blocks and need to revert to the original then just copy them over from the autocad template.  You did make a copy of the template before you started modifying it right?


The exclamation points in the triangle merely mean that their is a connection that is not complete on the object.  You have probably turned on that feature under the views tab ->MEP Views -> Solution Tips.  This is normal and doesnt mean anything is broken.
