Updating Block Descriptions


Recommended Posts

I am wondering if there is a way to update the description of an existing block. I notice that the associated hyperlink of a block can be updated via the Properties window, but I haven’t been able to find a location or command to update its description.


I suppose the block could be exploded and redefined with the new description, but my intuition says that there should be a more direct method I haven’t been able to figure out yet.


If it matters, I am using AutoCAD 2013.


Thanks in advance for the help.

Use the BEDIT command and change there in the Property Palette. Make sure you save the block when you exit the block editor. Worked in 2015 don't know about 2013.
