Try -wblock at the command line (note the dash)

HI Jason,

>>Have you tried using the command line version
of the WBLOCK command? Specifically, the
"whole drawing" option?

Is there something I don't know yet about the Wblock command?

Please educate me. I don't know what you mean by the command line version,
nor the "whole drawing" option.

If there's more to learn, I'd like to learn even if I am retiring in 2 more
months.....

Jason,

WELL DONE! The -WBLOCK command was able to carry all of the layout tabs
over to the new drawing, and it disposed of the unwanted block definition.
Now THAT is just like the good old days.

It also removed one of the three unwanted dimension styles. Curiously, I
was able to simply delete the two remaining dimensions styles in the Dim
Style Manager. And with that, the drawing has been rendered completely
clean.

It's been so long since R14, I'd forgotten how to fully utilize the command
line version of WBLOCK. Thanks for the kick in the head, Jason - good to
get back to basics.

And thanks to everybody for their input. Much appreciated.

Thank you Jason. I can't believe that that one got away from me ever since we got 2002.

I experiment with the dash before many commands and may very well have done so with wblock, but I can't remember it being so potent.

So why would such an important command be hidden to all of us, left to be found on our own??

I can't remember how many times I brought MS and PS over separately. I REALLY think AutoCAD could and should do a better job of educating the users.

Thank you again Jason.

You're welcome. Looks like there is also an
"entire drawing" option in the dialog version
of this command (haven't tried it).

How to copy any or all of your layout tabs, with all their contents, from one drawing file to another

in just a few effortless mouse clicks !

Visit this page, Lynn Allen http://goo.gl/U2i2Y.

It is absolutely brilliant and simple. I was stunned.
