It's not uncommon for us to need to update our block definitions from time to time. Redefining an existing block is not a very exciting task, tedious at best. This awesome command came to us in Auto CAD® 2000 with the chief goal of permitting the editing of attached external references.
You probably follow the same procedure we've all followed for years: Insert the block on the "0" layer... As it turns out, it's a fantastic block editor as well.
The drawing shown above has about 1/3 of the plan in an angle other than the 90 degree angle that makes drafting easier. When you have the UCS rotated and the view to match, you are able to turn on ortho and draw correct lines that match the needed angle without having to set various polar angles and having to process over think perpendicular walls to that angle. If you’ve had a drawing that isn’t completely based around 90 degree angles, this tip will halp you from tilting your head and straining you neck…To follow along you need a previously inserted block that you're willing to make some minor modification to.From the Modify pull-down menu select In-place Xref and Block Edit.Usage You are free to use the information listed here, but it is copyrighted works and are not public domain.

Everytime I plot a drawing that has an area block out with "Wipeout", that area plots out as a black shape ..when I made PDF files!
Looking at the PDF its fine, but when I try plotting the wipeout area prints out as a black shape.
These improvements come at great expense and only provide a marginal gain in the amount of time it takes to actually complete a drawing.
This expensive hardware is often underutilized as the operator wastes time doing repetitive tasks in the struggle to finalize a drawing.
