DISREGARD - SEE HURRICANE TIPS AND TRICKS

Hello

Can anyone give some guidance on how to replace a Titleblock that has attributes? To be clear I would like the block to be redefined.

This is what I have currently but it does not redefine the titleblock but just overlays a second block on top of the original block.

;;INSERT A BLOCK AT 0,0
;; EDIT "yourblockname" TO SUIT
;; In this example, a block named "PRELIMINARY" is inserted at 0,0
;;block is located in a support directory in this instance
_INSERT
"480th - SCMS Logo ANSI D Border"
0,0


















;ABOVE 18 CARRIAGE RETURNS ARE REQUIRED

Try using -insert then after all of the prompts have been answered then add erase and then last. That will get rid of the block. There are multiple ways to do things this is just one example.

make sue you use the quotes as shown below in the "block name = path-block name"

-INSERT
"Your Block name=\\full path to where the block lives\Your block name again"
0,0,0
