Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video List Properties, part of AutoCAD: Express Tools Workflow.
- [Instructor] So as usual we're staying…in our 02_Blocks.dwg file, I've used the Undo command to…take the block back to its original state, as you can see.…We're going to look now at a really really cool little command…in the Blocks panel in the Express Tools tab,…and it's this one here, List Properties.…If I click on that and come into the drawing area,…it prompts me to select the nested…xref or block object to list.…Now, this is a really really nice one…if you're using nested blocks like I am…with the workstation block that we've got in the drawing.…
If I hover over that lamp, it highlights the whole block,…but as soon as I left click, it tells me…that it is Lamp - Table, layer zero, and it's a block,…tells me the color, the line type, the layer.…How cool is that?…So if I go back and do that again, List Properties,…and I select, say, the workstation, there's the computer…terminal, and I've selected what I would call…a workstation, which is the computer terminal.…But the whole thing is classed…as a workstation, so be aware of that.…
