Redefine Block in this Drawing

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

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

To update a block on your drawing, go to

Ribbon: DMP: Customization->Customization Utilities->Open Block from Drawing

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

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

Select block to redefine:

The definition for the selected block will be updated to match the drawing that it is based upon.
