Show blocks in drawing

This tool shows all the blocks in the drawing. User has to specify the block name or select the block from the drawing and the tool will show all such blocks in the drawing. The routine will “put out” all other objects and display all the blocks with the selected name.

Run the tool from the following location:

MOUS_ICO Toolbar: Tools > Show Blocks in Drawing

Command prompts for:

Name of the block to select <Recently Selected Block Name>: Specify the block name or use . (period) to select the block from the drawing.

Command prompts for:

Select Block: Select the block.

The selected block is <Name of the Block Selected> Stop for each location (Yes/No) <Yes>:

  • Yes to stop after each occurrence of selected block. An arrow from the centre of the screen will display the insertion point of the block (and thus the block). Further, the point's co-ordinate will also be displayed at command prompt.
  • No to have a list of all the blocks with the same name in the drawing.
