    Copy/paste and edit block without changing the original block in drawing

    Milos Stancic

      Hi everyone,


      I am working with SW 2013 SP5.0. I have a drawing and in that drawing i am using a lot of lines and annotations which repeat a lot. And the move a little or have some minor changes from drawing to drawing. So it sped up this process a lot when i created several blocks which are used through out the drawing.


      Now on the other drawing i have to make similar blocks with some minor changes. So i just copied the existing blocks. And edited them. But editing pasted block also changed original block. So, how do i separate these two blocks ? i want the block which is copied from existing one not to have link to the existing block.


      As always grateful,
