Author Shaun Bryant shows you how to use the Block Editor in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] Once again,…we're staying in our DynamicBlocks.dwg file.…In the previous video, we looked at the Block Editor…and why it's there, and why we would use it.…What we're going to do in this video is we are…actually going to use the Block Editor to make a change…to one of our dynamic blocks in the DynamicBlocks.dwg file.…And the one that we're going to work…with is the table and chairs.…Now, the table and chairs is a cool dynamic block…because it allows me to make that dynamic block bigger,…and as I make the table bigger, more chairs appear.…
But wouldn't it be nice if I could actually kind of flip…that table around so I could alter the location of it…in the dining room if I needed to.…Now what we're going to do is we're going…to add a flip action and a flip parameter to the table…and the chairs dynamic block using the Block Editor.…So, select the table and chairs, and then it's a right click…on the mouse, or you could just double click on the block.…And what you want to do is right click with it selected…
