Changing block from Annotative to Non-annotative or vice versa.

A - answer With the BlkAnnot utility from the offering of CAD Studio's freeware tools you can easily change a block type (flag) from Annotation to standard plain non-annotation block (or vice-versa).

Download the BlkAnnot utility from, load it with APPLOAD and run the BlkAnnot command. The selected blocks will be converted to annotative or non-annotative (per option) without changing their definition and text attributes.

Make sure all layers used in your blocks are on and thawed.
