Changing Font Style in Nested Blocks

Is there a way to change text font style (Text, and Mtext) in nested blocks automatically? I need to do this for multiple nested blocks at once.

Style, change font in Standard to Arial, all changed. Why don't you do that?

Here's a sample.

 

I want to change the text font style from what it is now to Arial.

I don't see why you can not.

The font style of each nested block can be changed manually by going into each nested block one at a time.

 

But you can imagine how long this could take. In the example I attached earlier almost every text string has it's own block. That's twenty or more blocks.

 

It would be nice to have a way to automatically change the text in all of the nested blocks at the same time.

 

Is there a way to do this?

That works great. The only bummer is that if you ever move the nested block into another drawing it will change the font to whatever it is in that drawing.

 

But I think this will work for now. Thanks!

I had the same question and found the answer on another post, but would like to share it here as well.

 

Use the ATTSYNC command

 


(so happy I found that command!) :smileyvery-happy:
