Class Property Edit

Hi Everyone,


I am looking for a way to modify the class properties more comfortable.


Right now, I want to add 50+ properties, which will certainly become subject to some changes in the future.

Unfortunately, I cannot modify a certain property, once it is added....the button is grey.

So, if there are changes in the name of the property, I have to delete it and add a new one.


The most comfortable solution would be modifiying the properties in excel and import/export them.


Is this somehow possible?


Thanks in advance!

Does the property you are trying to modify have an asterisk in front of it? If so, you will need to modify that property under the parent class.

Thanks for your reply!


Yes, I know about that. But it is not my problem. I can set Lists, Rules, etc.


But I can't change the name of a class once it is created, I can't sort the classes, etc... I think it is not indented by AutoCAD, but it would be a nice feature.


In another thread someone mentioned, that it would be great to be able to group certain properties (eg. electrical, mechanical, ... properties)
