After issuing _bedit command and selecting block to edit or typing new name the block editor opens.....

 

The authoring palette can be found by clicking "Authoring Palette" on the "Manage" area of the Block Editor Ribbon.  If you dont see the palette it maybe off screen - this usually happens when you have a dual screen setup.

 

Try swapping the screens around in windows display setting then launch autocad again - move the palette to where you will see it then revert back to original screen setup.

 

Depending on your graphics card setup you may be able to force tools/controls launced by AutoCAD to Autocad's application window only.  I know we can do this using the nvidia desktop manager.

 

Hope this helps.

This is the WINDOWS forum, the MAC forum is elsewhere:

Apologies, I didnt notice the ref to using mac...

 

Unfortunately Ive very little experiance with AutoCAD on the MAC, some 10mins infact.  Its too different from the PC version for my tastes so I cant help....
