Blocks - Allow Exploding Option - System Variable

I have a library of blocks (1000+) that I want to set the "Allow Exploding" to be turned off. Is there a system variable that controls this setting? Then only way I know of is to go into each individual block and set each one in the properties dialog box. I would Like to write a script file to make the change if there is a variable.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

>> Is there a system variable that controls this setting?

No, that is no global sysvar, that is a property for each blockdefintion.

So you really have to go through every blockdefinition.

 

Sorry, - alfred -

That's what I was afraid of. Did not hurt to ask if there was an easier way.

 

Thanks

Ah AutoCAD. It's like building a car with loads of bits missing. Pretty bad paying for a program when simple no brainer features like this are missing. Sort it out Autodesk.
