Here is how you can REDEFINE a title block that has attributes. This routine replaces the block but requires or requests NO interaction or changes to any embedded attributes. This is useful if a logo has changed or something of the sort . . . . This is also pretty much the same routine as I show how to redefine a block. But this one adds ATTSYNC to refresh any attributes or reset their position

**********************************************************

;;REDEFINE A BLOCK
;; EDIT "yourblockname=" TO SUIT
;; You can add a path to the blockname
;; Or place the block in a support path directory
;; = denotes olld name = new name go find outside current drawing,
;; path or support search directory
;; Y denotes redefine
;; Command statement bypasses insert and scale prompts
;; See acad INSERT Help at command line, See -INSERT info in this help dialog
;; Notice there are no quotes in the block name associated with the attsync command
;; no space or return after ZOOM E
-INSERT
"IC2 363rd ANSI D Border="
Y
(COMMAND \e "RESUME")
_attsync N
IC2 363rd ANSI D Border
ZOOM E

***********************************************
