    Wow, I must be really behind the times and out of the loop. I don't see a single response to explode the block (or to be more precise the block reference, otherwise known as an insert object)

    If you have more than one occurance of this block in the drawing, all of them will change upon saving the edited block.

    explode

    it converts blocks back to base elements. If there are attributes you loose the text.

    burst

    explodes but if there are attributes that have been filled in, these are converted to text

    As Patrick mentioned earlier, there was no reply on explode or burst till his post.
    Thanks for your input. By unblocking I meant editing it and saving again. For this reason I like the bedit command. But also I learned what is explode and burst as well. Thanks

    The idea is that for a block you have his definition (which isn’t visible in drawing) and (but not necessary) a number of copies of that definition (block instances). When you modify one of those copy, you affect in fact the block definition, so all instances will be modified. Will see the same effect if you create a new block with the same name of an exiting one.

    Regards,
