Is there any way to have blocks available between more than one dft file? I want to be able to change a block in one file and have the changes to the block be active in the same block but in a different dft file. Is there any possibility? John
John, Blocks from one file may be used in another file. However, once it is inserted into the second file, it becomes an instance in the second file and is not associative to the file it was inserted from. There is a symbol object that may do what you need. A Draft file may be inserted into another Draft file as a symbol. Open Solid Edge Drafting Help and click on the Index tab. Search for 'symbol'. You should see 'symbol libraries' and 'symbols'. 'Symbol codes' is something else and does not apply here. Read about symbols and their usage. What you want to do is to use linked symbols. When doing this, you must maintain the location of the symbol file so that any Draft file you insert the symbol into knows where the symbol file is located. Do not use symbols in all cases as a replacement for blocks. Regards, Rick B.
