This video demonstrates how to save a block for later use.
- [Instructor] If we know that we want to use blocks…that we've created in the future,…it's always a good idea to save those blocks.…And what I like to do is save them in a design library…that can be referenced later on.…So all you have to do is select a block,…right click on it, and go to Save Block.…This is going to bring up…the Save as dialog box, and you can see here…it's automatically gone to my design library…because that's my default location for blocks.…I'm just going to go into the blocks here,…type in a name, and then hit Save.…
Now if I go over to my design library on the right,…I'm going to hit Refresh, and if I scroll over,…I can see that block that I just inserted right there.…You'll notice that it didn't change the name of the block…in this sketch.…It's not going to do that.…If I hit Ctrl + Q, it's not going to do that.…It only changed it for down here…because I saved that block in a new location.…It's like doing a Save as,…like you would do with a part feature,…and then saving that part in that location.…
