Match prop block

Recommended Posts

Hi guys...

Little problem... The aituation is that i have this block (set to layer 0), inside that block has different layer and color as well... I want to copy/matchprop the object inside the block, is it possible? Matchprop the object will set the destination to 0 or white, i want is to copy it without going inside/edit block in place then matchprop the object... 

Any help will do... Thanks in advance.

I would use NCopy to pull the source object out of the block. You can then use the Matchprop command on the destination object and delete the source. By the same token, you could insert a dummy copy of the block, explode it, and pull off as many properties as you need.

Thanks cyber... But ncopy is same as matchprop the block that is set to 0, then the copied object will still be 0. Edit block in place, matchprop the source to the destination, which is better... I think🤣. What im trying to achieve is to skip 1 method instead of 2 or 3...

 

Ta!

My guess is that you'll have to write some code to do that. The question is, will you save time in the long run by investing some now in the programming.

This seems like the easiest and most straightforward approach, and probably the one that I would use. 😉

 

If you want a command to matchprop to an object inside a block, you will need a custom lisp routine. You should post your question in the lisp section and see if anyone can help.
