Sharing parameters between blocks

I wish to have a single dimension alter the dimensions in a set of nested blocks, similar to shared parameters in Revit. For example, I have a circle that has a fixed diameter that I wish to control in all blocks.  I have set the diameter to barDia so now I wish to manipulate the dimension from outside the block.


Am I able to share the parapeter across all the blocks, please?

No, you can't share it between your blocks.

But however, if all blocks are similar or of a similar type/name or other properties you can use Qselect to select all blocks in a drawing containing that parameter and edit the value of all those blocks in properties window.

(Use a stretch action to alter the dimension)
