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.

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.
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.
