creating a place to insert blocks

228 Views, 5 Replies

I worked with about 70 blocks that I routinely insert in drawings, at present I have an area where I keep all them in every drawing.  I would like to have a bar that will contain the blocks where I can drag and drop them into place.

 

Thank you for any assistance

You can do this with Design Center:

 

Type ADCENTER at the command line, or Ctrl+2. 

 

Navigate to your drawing, on "Blocks" right click and select "Create tool palette".

You may also want to look into using Tool Palettes because you be able to create separate tabs for individual topics, like, a tab for Title-sheets, a tab for Annotation symbols, a tab for each discipline-specific symbology

Attached is a tutorial I created for my company on how to create Tool Palettes.  Let me know if it was helpful/useful.
