Redefine Block in this Drawing

The Redefine Block in this Drawing command is used to update a block definition in a drawing after changes have been made to the drawing the block is based upon.

When a block is inserted in the drawing, the definition for that block is stored in the drawing. If the drawing that the block is based upon is later changed, the definition in the drawings where it has been inserted is not updated. It is necessary to manually update the block definition. It is possible to do this using the INSERT command in AutoCAD, but the Redefine Block in this Drawing command simplifies the process.

To update a block on your drawing, go to

Ribbon: DME: Customization->Block Creation->Redefine Block in this Drawing

Pulldown Menu: DM Electrical->Customization->Redefine Block in this Drawing

You will be prompted to select the block to be updated.

Select block to redefine:

Select a block on the drawing. The block definition will be updated to match the drawing that it is based upon.
