This one’s for you Eric.
Intead of knocking over your cubicle because you can’t edit a block, there is an AutoCAD system variable that lets you lock your blocks from being able to edit them in the Block Editor. So if you cannot explode a block or edit in the block editor, this tip is for you.
- The system variable is BLOCKEDITLOCK and can be set to either 1 or 0 (zero)
- <0> = Off – Block Editor can be opened
- <1> = On – Block Editor cannot be opened
Below shows how this variable affects “Dynamic Blocks” Usually you double click a dynamic block in order to select the block from a list and then that block will open in the block editor. But with this System Variable turned on, a double-click will only bring up the properties box.
