Q - question

Rename block attribute.

A - answer If you need a late change of the attribute name (tag) in existing blocks (both in its definition and all its references), you can use the Block manager - BATTMAN - the ribbon Insert > Attributes > Manage.

Select of the references of the espective block or choose the block name from the list. Click on the line with the attribute to be changed and hit button Edit. In the "Edit attribute" dialog, overwrite the value in the line "Tag".

Similarly you can change the attribute mode, its prompt, its default value, or change it to a multiline attribute.
