Modify Blocks, Lines not updating

322 Views, 1 Replies

Why after making changes to the leader line (layer/color)0r a block  in the project manager I have to double click on the leader for it to reflect the new change I made.

Is there a variable or regen-all command the will update all the drawings when as they are opened?


This is not the first time I have had to double click on an item so it would show the new changes.


If anyone could help that would be great.

Synchstyles should update the blocks. Not sure about the lines though. If you set SYNCHSTYLESMODE to 63, it will synchstyles automatically everytime you open a drawing. Do it for every drawing and then set the mode back to 42. 63 is not productive because of the lag when opening a drawing.
