changing all nested blocks' color to bylayer


Recommended Posts

Hello helpful people. I'm looking for a routine to reference edit every block in my drawing and change the color of everything to "bylayer".


I can make a script easily enough that will chprop all color to bylayer but that won't touch things inside blocks.


What do you do when you encounter this problem? Thanks in advance!:)

Beware though - it's limited in the respect that it will only attsync the selected blocks, any unselected blocks of the same name as the selected ones in the drawing will remain unchanged
