Block editor

Postby S2BCROZ » Mon Oct 10, 2011 6:23 pm

How do I exit the block editior once in it? I click the pencil icon to edit a block but can't figure out how to exit and return back to the drawing.

Make sure that the block list is visible (View - Toolbars - Blocklist).

After editing a block, double-click Model Space to edit the main drawing (model space) again.

hmm, can seem to get it to work. I open my drawing, then from the block list I select a block and then choose the edit button, this opens the block. i make changes, then double click but it does not return me back to the main drawing.

Double-click on the '*Model_Space' block or click '*Model_Space' and then click the button to edit the selected block.

For better understanding: Editing the main drawing is in fact nothing different than editing a block, the special root level block called '*Model_Space'.
