Modifiy custom block

Hi Everyone,


I got a problem, which I am pretty sure, is easy to solve.


I created a block, that consists out of several P&ID objects, lines etc..., using the "block" command.

I use it as kind of an assembly.


Now I want to change this block. But when I open the block in the block editor and try to move some inner parts of the block, I just can't. It says: P&ID objects cant be modified in block editor.

But the whole block itself is not a P&ID object...


Can anyone help me with this?

Any P&ID object inside a block cannot be modified, copied and deleted.


We have a lot of problem with this limitation especially when it was converted into an equipment. The only way was to explode the block or do not use any P&ID object inside a block at all.
