Re: Block Reference question.

Hi,

 

so last guess before I try to simulate your situation

You exploded the DWG1, so you have in this drawing

  • a) a BlockTableRecord "ModelSpace" containing one BlockReference "BLOCK1"
  • b) a BlockTableRecord "BLOCK1" ... whatever defines this block
  • c) a BlockTableRecord "DWG1" containing one BlockReference "BLOCK1"

 

Now you check "how often is my BlockTableRecord named "BLOCK1 referenced within that database".

Look to the colored words ==> 2

I understand now. thanks

 

When you explode Dwg1, you're making a copy of the block reference in Dwg1,

so you end up with two block references:

one in the Dwg1 block table record, and one in the *Model_Space block table record.
