SEE HURRICANE TIPS AND TRICKS

Could someone offer some guidance on how to redefine a titleblock that has attributes? The script I have overlays a second titleblock, meaning it does not redefine it. The goal is to redefine the titleblock, I also need to add an ATTSYNC so the attribute font height will be updated too:

CURRENT SCRIPT:

;;INSERT A BLOCK AT 0,0
;; EDIT "yourblockname" TO SUIT
;; In this example, a block named "ic2 363rd ANSI D Border" is inserted at 0,0
_INSERT
"C:\Temp\IC2 363rd ANSI D Border.dwg"
0,0






















;ABOVE 22 CARRIAGE RETURNS ARE REQUIRED

HERE IS THE F2 DEBUG INFO FROM ACAD AFTER THE BLOCK IS INSERTED SUCCESSFULLY, I THINK


Command:
AutoCAD menu utilities loaded.
Command: _INSERT
Enter block name or : "C:\Temp\IC2 363rd ANSI D Border.dwg"

Units: Inches Conversion: 1.0000
Specify insertion point or [Basepoint/Scale/X/Y/Z/Rotate/Explode/REpeat]: 0,0

Enter X scale factor, specify opposite corner, or [Corner/XYZ] <1>:
Enter Y scale factor <use X scale factor>:

Specify rotation angle <0>:

Enter attribute values
