    Default Select Blocks by Name & Attribute Property

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I know that you can select all instances of a block reference by using QSELECT and specifying Block Reference and then where "Name" equals your given block name.

    Is there a way to quickly select a block by name (exactly like the above), and then 'afterwards' reduce that selection down to just those blocks where attribute X is equal to a given string?

    TIA

    Look at the FILTER command, not easy to set up for a beginner but once you create the filter(s) you can save them with the dwg.
