How to select all anonymous blocks in a DWG?

A - answer You can use the selection function in AutoLISP - (ssget) - to select anonymous blocks from your current AutoCAD drawing.

On the select objects prompt, type the following function to select all standard anonymous blocks:

(ssget '((2 . "`*U*")))

or to select all types of anonymous blocks:

(ssget '((2 . "`**")))

(you can preset both functions to a menu button or to a keyboard shortcut)
