I am on AA2013 - Whenever I edit a block with REFEDIT, when trying to save/exit, it freezes, and it takes a looong time to exit, sometimes it will crash.....anyone knows what is going on?
I get the same problems with refedit'ing blocks in a largish cad file. When I say largish I am talking 6mb files, with 14,000 objects. I hope that if you copy the block to a new fresh autocad file that it still doesnt take just as long to edit the block.
Maybe the block is an older block from old versions of autocad? Try exploding the block, purging everthing unnecessary, copying, and pasting into a new cad file, then re-create the block and save it on top of the old block file.
Is there a difference in speed between using "edit block in place" and just "edit block"?
I don't know of any values you could change within autocad.
Thanks for the replies.
Drawing is 3.18 mb.
I opened 2 other drawings and the REFEDIT command works and closes just fine, so it seems to be related to this drawing.....these are 2D blocks. BEDIT is somewhat slow closing/saving but not as much as REFEDIT
