When I select certain blocks from my tool palette, I see the block following my cursor waiting for me to select an insertion point. No problem, that's what I've always seen with AutoCAD. But now, depending on where I hover my cursor, the block image rotates as I move over entities. The block aligns and rotates itself depending on which side of a line I hover over. Make sense? Is there a variable that controls this self aligning of a block at insert? This is new to me.
>> Is there a variable that controls this self aligning of a block at insert?
It's the defintiion of the block that has the alignment-parameter (>>>details<<<) built in.

In some cases yes. Imagine you have walls of an architectural on any angle and you want to place a block for an exelcticval socket onto it. It should stay 90° to the wall ==> and for that sample the alignment-parameter is great (as it is for a lot of other jobs also).
