  • Great work as always!!!
    Artur I | July 12, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Lee,

    Thanks, very usefull tool! Can you please add possibility to select blocks from the list? Thanks


  • Simple and effective
    Mathias Johansson | June 28, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great app indeed! One question: How do I use wildcards in the same tag?

    For example, two floors are divided into 8 drawings each. And one row in the block is supposed to be: "Floor 1, part x". How do I exclude ", part x" and change only "Floor 1" to "Floor 2" in the 8 drawings for floor 2?  


  • Ability to Change Visibility States in this lsp would be great.
    TODD LUCAS | June 19, 2018

    nice lisp.  having the Ability to Change Visibility States in this lsp would be great.  Such as having a dynamic block for drawing issues and being able to change visibility states automatically would be a great add on to this lisp.


  • Huge Time Saver

    Exactly what is needed to update block attributes project wide. Much appreciated! Thanks


  • Perfect
    y liu | January 25, 2018

    Very good app! Just found it a few days ago, tried on my drawings. It worked but just worked on two drawings. After updated two drawings appear window with message: FATAL ERROR: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0xffffffff Exception at dce8b33h. So I have to reload app and BATTE again and again. Is it possible to fix this problem? Not sure if something wrong on my side. I use AutoCAD 2015. Thanks in advance!


  • Potentially very useful
    Jon Gilana | January 18, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Actually, you can also download the AutoLISP file for this program (BAtteV1-4.lsp) from Lee Mac's website (http://lee-mac.com/batte.html). There are instructions on there on how to load AutoLISP files. It should work on most AutoCAD versions, including 2018.


  • Fantastic app!
    kyle humbert | December 21, 2017

    Great and easy to use app. Do you know if 2018 support is on the horizon?

    Glad I came across this! Thanks Lee for cutting my editing time down a bit!


  • Select drawning problem
    Stanislav Savin | November 28, 2016

    Cannot change attribute when file is in use. Appear window with message: "All of selected files are currently in use and cannot be processed"


    Lee Mac (Publisher) | November 28, 2016

    This is by design and is not an error: drawings that are already open (either in the active drawing session, or by another user) are read-only to the program and therefore cannot be modified. This is indicated by the program when you attempt to select an open drawing for processing.


  • Very good work!
    Emanoil Postolache | November 17, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    a well deserved five star rating


  • excellent app
    David Forshaw | September 08, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Excellent app, thank you. As a future suggestion: can you control visibility states through this; where an attribute that was invisible becomes visible after running the app?


  • Big Help
    Wai Cheuk | May 17, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Thank you so much Lee Mac! Is it possible to write an order function to change orders of the drawings after the import?


  • Excellent!!!
    Jason Burdick | June 03, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I took this for a spin this morning. Where have you been all my life? ;-) Editing title block attribute values has been a major source of drudgery throughout my career, and this tool just cut the time required by 90 percent. I will save hours on every project. This app is superb. If I may offer a suggestion, it would be very helpful to be able to see the attribute prompt in the interface. Most of our prompts are more descriptive than our tags. This is still a five-star tool, but that feature would put it over the top. Thanks for such a great free product.


    Lee Mac (Publisher) | June 07, 2015

    Hi Jason, thank you very much for your glowing review & encouraging feedback, I'm delighted to hear that you like the app and found it so useful in your work. I appreciate your suggestion, however, since the attribute data is primarily entered by the user and may be arbitrary, such data may reference blocks which are not present in the active drawing, hence, the app would not be aware of the prompt string for such attributes. Thank you for your positive feedback nonetheless. Lee


  • Best app
    Khanh Mai | April 15, 2015

    The app helps me to save a lot of time to edit a large number of drawings. My job is no longer tedious. By the way, is it possible to use this app to update the page number tag in per drawing?


  • good
    Samuel Shanthanaraja | December 29, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    its not showing any changes in revision and tittle block still its in text please explain brifly


    Lee Mac (Publisher) | May 28, 2015

    As I explained in my email response to you: this application is designed to modify attribute values, not the content of plain text or mtext.


    Jason Burdick | June 03, 2015

    It sounds like you don't understand what block attributes are. I don't think a one-star rating is fair. This app may not do what you want it to do, but it performs its stated function very well.


  • Best App Available
    SHAUN BALLEW | June 03, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is the best app I have used hands down. Hope it continues to be available when I upgrade to 2015.


    Lee Mac (Publisher) | May 28, 2015

    Thank you Shaun! The application has now been updated to enable compatibility with AutoCAD 2015 & 2016.


    Francisco Narvaez Martinez | July 19, 2015
