assuming MEP works the same as AutoCAD they are anonymous blocks. They are very difficult to control although there are a number of LISP routines in this forum that will make them accessible.

 

Search for anonymous blocks or check the similar threads below.

ok thanks. And I need lisp to control them right?. Is there anyway to see at least the folder that it comes from?. I'll search for anonymous blocks.

I believe *u can be created from dynamic blocks, you may want to search for that as well as anonymous blocks.

 

Corrected, my mind and fingers do not seem connected properly today.

*U is a uniformly scaled anonymous block. *E is a non-uniformly scaled anonymous block. The first can be exploded using the EXPLODE command.

 

Convert an anonymous block with a *U prefix to normal AutoCAD block by using a lisp routine called UNANON.lsp found here... http://www.draftsperson.net/index.php?title=Anonymous_Blocks_in_AutoCAD
