    Default Ref Edit save as

    I've just got AutoCAD Mechanical 2004, and in the previous edition i had you were able to use refedit to edit a block and then use the save as function to save this block under a new name and hence not altering the original block.
    This save as function does not seem to be in 2004, does anyone know how to do this function in 2004.

    Default Re: Ref Edit save as

    I just shuffled through some older versions of CAD and find no instance
    of REFEDIT that allows a save-as during the operation.

    I agree with what Michael says above - Such functionality has never been available with the RefEdit command in vanilla AutoCAD....

    Was your "Previous Edition" also an Autodesk Mechanical product?

    If yes, maybe it was available - I honestly don't know as I've never used any Autodesk Mechanical Products. I'd therefore like to move this thread to the AutoCAD Mechanical Forum.... Do you agree?

    Thanks, Mike
