Can some referesh my memory about how to use block editor to create, delete,and edit blocks? What I do is copy and paste as block to create a block. Is that a good approach?
to create a block I just draw the geometry in modelspace (besides my model), then start the command _BLOCK, show this geometry and make a check at "Open in Blockeditor" to continue working on it.
To modify an existing blockdefinition I look for an inserted block in my drawing, select it, right click ==> Blockeditor

that would be a lot of screenshots ... or better a video. But will a video with the German version of AutoCAD help you?
The better option would be to scan the help-file for that, there are a lot of screenshots + descritive text, a lot more than I want to write down here.
For command _BLOCK >>>look here<<<
For BEDIT (block editor) look >>>here<<<

I have a block with some attribute values and terminals in it. I saved a the block but when I insert it the attribute values and terminals dissapear. Is there a way I can save it correctly to avoid this fmo happening?

I have a two block (same block name) in two different locations for different purpose. I want to distinct the names .How can I change the name of one block without changing the other?When I use the REN command it changes both block.
Also, I have a block with some default values added but the default values is not showing on my drawing.
Please let me know. Thanks.

open your block for editing
saves your block with a different name, inserts the new one to replace the existing, and erase the old one...
Hope that helps,
