Cannot close block editor
« on: January 12, 2008, 01:17:43 PM »
Hi There,

We work with autocad 2008 and sometimes after I edited an dynamic block and hit the close button i see at the commandline:** BCLOSE command only allowed in Block Editor. **

Now i'm stuck in de block editor and can't go back to the drawing. The only solution i know is to save and close the drawing and recover it, otherwise when i open the drawing again i only see the dynamic block.

Does anyone know about this problem and know how i can resolve it?

Thanks for any help.

I think you need to save the block using the commands within the block editor (upper left corner of the block editor), not in the main drawing window. You should also be able to exit the block editor with the "Close Block Editor" button in the upper right corner of the editor.

Maybe not what you're looking for though.

I guess one way is go into block editor
then edit block
then use Save as in block editor-----in pic
then just replace references
