How do attribute changes to blocks/inserts work?
I have several inserts showing the motion of a part and I'd like them to be different colors. However, when I select the insert and change the color with the attributes menu, the insert deselects and no color change occurs until I explode the block. Then of course I lose the utility of the block.
From the manual it seems that color ought to be a changeable attribute, like scaling or angle, I just can't figure out how to do it.
Incidentally, if I immediately undo the explode, i sometimes end up with
the block 'on top of' the exploded items. I'm not sure why it happens with
some blocks and not others.
