Block attribute order
« on: June 22, 2017, 11:36:51 am »
im running ACAD Architecture 2015

Is there still no way to permanently edit block attribute order in the base file (Like you can locally with BATTMAN)  without basically rebuilding the block from scratch?

HAAAALLLLLPPPPPPP

BATTORDER command only works in block editor but you can,
  • insert block into a drawing
  • open block in block editor and use BATTORDER to update
  • WBLOCK out block as a drawing and overwrite original file

As an alternative you can edit an attribute by its creation order rather than by tagname. Use vla-get-property 'attributes it makes a list which you can access via (nth x lst) and change the attribute value.
