I want to import blocks from dwgA and then show this in my key in paperspace (dwgB). I have imported .dwgA as an Xref, but blocks have not been imported too...

Can anyone help?

Use the Design Center to drag and drop from the Xref dwg (dwg B) on to the open dwg (dwg A) or you would need to BIND the xref. In Design Center browse to the dwg on the left panel, expand all the way down to the blocks. From the right side select the block and while holding on the left mouse button click and drag onto your dwg. Wait for the cursor to change from the NO (o with the line though it) to the block. You may need to scale the block down afterwards if you are placing it in Paper Space
