Q - question

Block changes are not reflected in the drawing.

A - answer When you edit a block (change the position of an attribute, change other geometric property of an attribute, add a new attribute, or lock/unlock its position), the new block definition (shape) is not reflected in the drawing - the drawing shows the previously inserted block references still in the old shape.

Use the BATTMAN command and its option Synchronize to propagate the changes to the drawing.

You can also use the ATTSYNC command.
