Block Update

Block Update

Win32 and 64, English

Replace selected blocks with blocks of the same name from another drawing.

General Usage Instructions

Select one or more obsolete blocks and run the BUpdate command.
The command will offer to select a file with updated blocks.
The command will find blocks in the specified file with the same names as the blocks in your file and make a replacement. The names must match exactly.

Note that the block definition (BlockTableRecord) will be overridden, so all occurrences of that block (BlockReference) will be updated, not just the ones you selected.
