HOW TO EDITING THE BLOCK ORIGIN LOCATION?


What is the way to move the origin location once the block has been created?
Thanks,
Ron

Ron,
Currently you cannot move the origin relative to the geometry in the block.
Unblock the block and create a new block with a different origin.

Correct me if I'm wrong Ricky but can't you essentially change the origin by
just moving the geometry within the block file. For example, say i have a
block that is just a square with the origin at one corner. If I open the
block file, select all geometry and move it such that the opposite corner is
in the same location as the original corner origin., then the origin has
changed. If I try to place that block again it will be placed with the new
corner origin. The tradeoff is that all your blocks will change position in
every drawing they're located.
Again, correct me if I'm wrong. I don't use blocks enough to be an expert.

David,
That is true. It requires knowlede of where the origin is as the block is
edited.

Hi, the problem is when you unblock something, all the formulas you enter into the block are undone.
Then after I reblock it, then I have to select every formula again and re-enter in all the variables.
