Hi everyone,


I draw a new template for my company but at this new drawing, i found out that i have to add something new to the template after completing the project.


I searched the forum but couldn't find a solution to update the used template at active drawings project wide. 


Thanks from now..

Hi uabh


I believe that you can achieve the results that you are looking for by using the "Swap/Update Block" tool.  This tool allows you to update blocks with changes you have made across the entire project or to actually swap one block out for another.  There are several options for this tool, so you will want to take a close look to ensure that you get the exact results you are looking for.  I have attached a screenshot showing where you can access this tool at on the ribbon.




I hope this helps!!
