Now, attributes are associated with blocks and the data that we assign to attributes can later be extracted to create part lists or to calculate construction costs. When it comes to editing attribute data, some of the tools are a little outdated, so it's tempting to make changes one object at a time. In this lesson I'm going to show you some quick ways to make global changes to the attribute data in a drawing.

On my screen I have a drawing of a CAD lab. This drawing contains several blocks and all of the blocks contain attributes. Let's Zoom in and you may be wondering where the data is. Well, I typically place my attributes on a layer of their own and that layer is currently turned off. So I'm going to open the Layer control and I'll turn on this layer called attribute-data.
