EDIT BLOCK ATTRIBUTES WITH A MACRO

Hi All,

 

I would like to set up a macro which changes multiple attributes within a single selected block.

 

         workflow; click block > click macro button > *attributes change*

(it is important to note that there are many of the same blocks within the drawing with different values)

 

<back story>  I have had to create a custom 'material tag' (balloon with writing) which i have to go through and type in each individual 'material tag' (about 80 tag's per drawing) (lets not talk about how many drawings..haha)

 

I have attached the current tag that I am using (workflow; drag the block in > explode block > edit attributes of block (which was inside the other block))

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if someone could shed some light on how I direct a macro to a selected block/anything.

 

 

Many thanks, Caleb Mullins.
