    Question Redefine Insertion Point of a Block

    Is there any way to redefine an insertion point for a block without actually exploding and redefining?

    Does anyone know of a LISP Routine that will allow one to do so?

    Default Re: Redefine Insertion Point of a Block

    Here's what I do. I go to the line command and when it says first point, enter "insert" it will prompt "of", and just hover over the block. You will see a 2square grip appear at the block's insertion point. Draw a line with ortho on from that point either vertically or horizontally, remembering the starting point since that's the insertion point of the block. Then click on the block, right click and go to edit block in place. Then when you move the block, you will know where the original insertion point was and you can offset the line you made from the insertion point, or move it a certain distance based on the location of the insertion point. Then save the changes, and you should be good to go.l
