I have recently downloads a pile of files, blocks for inserting, symbols. Apparently all files have block in them of the same name of the file name. Thus, upon inserting a file I get the error "block reference itself" and will not insert. Is there a means of removing the block in the file in a batch method? Since there is over 8700 blocks, I do not want to open each file, explode, purge, save, individually. Looking for a batch method that basically does the same thing. Or some other method to not only remove the error, but also to avoid the purging nested block on layer problems.
Hi everyone glad to be in this amazing forum. Straight to the point: is there a way to explode the nested blocks in a drawing that contain a a common word in their name? In our case we have a lot of blocks exported from vectorworks whose name was substitute with -group-xxx-y, is there a way to run a routine similar to exnest but that would explode only the nested blocks with that similar name? Thanks for any help:)
