View Full Version : Trouble with block insertion
2005-05-10, 12:56 PM
I have figured out how to set up a dynamic block within a current drawing. However, when I try and insert that same block into another drawing the block references itself. If I explode the block, then I loose the dynamic properties.
How do I set up a dynamic block to be inserted into other drawings?
Thanks for the help.

Perhaps ypu can post the drawing with the DBlock? Dynamic blocks honor the same rules as normal blocks for naming and self-references.

You've made Call a nested block. The drawing itself is named Call, and holds a single block definition also named Call. Simply WBlock out the Call block to another drawing, delete the Call.dwg, and rename the WBlock'd drawing to Call.
The BEdit command can work on an entire drawing. So for your next symbol, just place your individual objects in ModelSpace, use the BEdit command, but select <Current Drawing> and not a block definition.
